Rookie Patrol is the first level of the Lifesaving Society’s 3 level Canadian Swim Patrol Program for swimmers who are ready to go beyond learn-to-swim. In this level, swimmers will focus on stroke refinement and improved physical conditioning, and the introduction to basic first aid and lifesaving skills. They will complete a timed swim of 100m in 3 min, 25m of any lifesaving kick, and a swim workout of 350m. They will learn how to conduct a primary assessment in a lifesaving situation, when and how to call EMS and how to do rescue breathing. Swimmers will be able to simulate and recognize weak vs non-swimmers.

Carleton University suspended vaccination & masking requirements for participation in in-person Carleton activities in May/June 2022. The evolution of Covid-19 and public health conditions are difficult to predict, so these decisions were contingent on current conditions and directions continuing. Masking and other safety measures may be reinstated at a later time. Carleton University recommends the use of masks indoors when physical distance cannot be maintained.
