Swimmers work on propulsion skills to move through the water and to remain at the surface. Swimmers work on the front swim (5m) and learn about deep-water activities and proper use of a Personal Flotation Device (PFD). Fitness activities include the 10m flutter kick and a 10m distance swim.

* For younger swimmers registered in PRIVATE or SEMI-PRIVATE lessons, or Swim Kids 1-2-3 (perhaps Swim Kids 4), a Parent or Guardian MUST accompany swimmers in the water to provide support as needed. Due to physical distancing requirements, no hands-on instruction will be completed by Swim Instructors.

Note: Refunds or credits for missed private/semi-private or group lessons will not be provided. Make-up lessons can not be arranged, and substitute (non-registered) swimmers are not permitted.

Like other universities in Ontario, Carleton University will suspend its vaccination requirements for participation in in-person Carleton activities beginning May 1, 2022.  On the recommendation of Ottawa Public Health, Carleton will be maintaining the mandatory COVID-19 Mask Policy until further notice. 

The evolution of the virus and public health conditions are difficult to predict, so this decision is contingent on current conditions and directions continuing. Vaccine mandates may be reinstated at a later time.

Please be advised that Carleton University will still be requiring proof of full vaccination for children aged 5 years and older until May 1, 2022.

Any individual who believes they cannot be vaccinated on medical grounds or other protected grounds recognized by the Ontario Human Rights Code can request an exemption.
