Swim to Survive

Swim To SurviveSwim to Survive school program is a Lifesaving Society survival training program for Grade 3 students. The goal is to have every Grade 3 student in Ontario achieve the Swim to Survive standard. There are 3 parts: 3 in-water lessons (1 hour each), 3 classroom water safety lessons and a handout for parents of participating children. Free of charge. Please contact Stacey Weston (sweston01@stclaircollege.ca) to register your Grade 3 class.

What is the Swim to Survive standard?

Swim to Survive defines the minimum swim skills needed to survive an unexpected fall into deep water. Because most drownings occur close to safety, and most victims had no intention of going into the water, Swim to Survive focuses on three basic survival skills:

  • ROLL into deep water
  • TREAD water for one minute
  • SWIM 50 metres

Swim to Survive +
