Swim for Life - Lifesaving Society

Swim for Life Logo

East Gwillimbury (EG) is proud to partner with the Lifesaving Society to provide high-quality swim lessons for our residents. 

Swim for Life® is a complete learn-to-swim program from Parent and Tot through to Leadership. You can spot Water Smart® kids right away. They’re the ones who know how to swim and behave safely around water. The Lifesaving Society’s Swim for Life® program makes sure your kids are Water Smart® before they get in too deep.

You’re never too young to start, and never too old to learn. Swim for Life® offers different strokes for different folks – of all ages and abilities.

Today, the Society’s Swim for Life program has grown into a major, national program that teaches hundreds of thousands of Canadians how to swim every year.

If you have any questions about EG’s new Aquatics program, please contact our Recreations Services department.
