Not sure what swim program to register for? Refer to the Lifesaving Society Swim Chart or stop by the Tecumseh Parks and Recreation Administration Office the week of May 8th to 12th to speak to a Pool Coordinator. The Pool Coordinator will check your past registrations to see what swim level your child completed and what they should be registered for this year.
Private Swimming Lessons - Private lessons are an excellent way to obtain one on one time with a certified swim instructor. Whether it's minor stroke correction or if you feel this teaching environment would be more beneficial, Private Swim Lessons meet the needs of any individual. Semi-private lessons are also available for those participating within one level of each other.

BECOME A LIFEGUARD & SWIM INSTRUCTOR
Lifeguarding is an exciting and rewarding job that carries great responsibility. Guards take courses and train hard for events they hope will never happen and which they work hard to prevent.
NLS guards are always in training to keep their skills, knowledge and fitness sharp. They require a high degree of motivation, dedication and leadership in order to be water rescue professional trained in emergency care.
For more information about Canada's only nationally recognized lifeguard certification program, visit www.lifesavingsociety.com or speak to one of the lifeguards at the Tecumseh Leisure Pool.
