  • Aqua Babies

    (04 months - 03 years)

    Parent & Tot

    Introduce your little one to the water in a safe and enjoyable way! Our classes are specifically designed for young children under the age of 3, and are a great way to introduce young swimmers to submerging, breath control, kicking on both the front and back, and underwater swimming.

    We recommend starting your little one as early as four months old to build confidence in and around the water.

    Once they reach the age of three, they can graduate into our Swim 101 program.

  • Beginners

    (03 - 07 years)

    Swim 101

    Our Swim 101 classes provide the foundation for your child to become a confident and independent swimmer. These lessons are designed for students who are new to swimming, or who have limited experience in the water. They may also be suitable for children who have a fear of the water, or who have not had the opportunity to learn how to swim before. Important skills they will learn include self-submersion, breath control, front and back kicks, modified treading water, and freestyle swimming with their face in the water.

    For our more anxious students, we use the Power Swimr to help build their confidence in the water. This tool is designed to adapt to your child's skill level by removing foam layers to give them the perfect amount of support they need to take the plunge.

    Once students can swim 15m with breath control, and without a floatation device, they will be ready to move on to Swim Strokes 201.

  • Intermediate

    (06 -08 years)

    Swim Strokes 201

    Swim Strokes 201 takes your child from a novice paddler to a proficient swimmer. This program is designed for swimmers who have already mastered the basics of swimming and are looking to improve their skills and techniques. These lessons typically focus on refining strokes, increasing endurance, and introducing more advanced techniques such as flip turns while also teaching your child the basics of the flutter kick, backstroke, and freestyle (front crawl) with side breathing.

    Once they have mastered these fundamentals, children can progress to Advanced Swim Strokes 301, which requires them to be able to swim 20 meters of freestyle with side breathing and 20 meters of backstroke.

  • Advanced

    (07+ years)

    Advanced Swim Strokes 301

    Advanced Swim Strokes 301 provides your child with the opportunity to take their abilities to the next level and also learn the proper techniques for breaststroke and butterfly. Through precise instruction and specialized drills, students develop the muscle memory necessary to master these advanced strokes. Additionally, these lessons focus on refining and perfecting stroke technique, building endurance, and introducing more challenging strokes and skills while helping your child to gain the confidence and strength needed for competitive swimming or lifeguard training.

    Upon completion of this program, your child will be able to swim an 80m individual medley, consisting of 20m of each stroke: freestyle, backstroke, breaststroke, and butterfly.

  • Pre-competitive

    (07+ years)

    Power Swim I

    Our Power Swim I focuses on the technique for front crawl, back crawl, breaststroke arms with flutter kick, and dolphin kick with proper breathing. In each session, students will swim approximately 800 to 1000 meters. During the initial classes, the majority of drills will be geared towards improving swimmers' stroke technique; endurance training will be gradually incorporated into each class while adhering to the progression principle. Upon successful completion of this level, students will be able to progress to Power Swim II.

  • Pre-competitive

    (09+ years)

    Power Swim II

    Power Swim II continues to improve swimmers' technical skills, focusing on complex strokes such as butterfly. Endurance training is the primary focus at this level, while we add an element of speed swimming for an extra challenge. Diving from a diving board is another skill we work on during Power Swim II, and for those who love back crawl, we also teach backstroke starts. We provide detailed breakdowns of breaststroke and butterfly to help swimmers become more efficient in the water and prepare them for competitive teams.

Class Length

Each class lasts for 30 minutes including 2 minutes reserved for feedback

Monthly Billing

Your credit card will automatically be charged on the 20th of each month for the upcoming month’s lessons. For example, October’s tuition would be processed on September 20th.

In the event that you need to withdraw your student from class, please email support@theaqualife.ca. To process your withdrawal from lessons we need 30 days of advance notice the month prior (e.g. you have until the end of July to let us know that August is your last month of lessons; e.g. you have until the end of November to advise us that December is your last month of lessons). All withdrawals must take place at the end of a month. While you can withdraw from lessons mid-month, you will not be refunded for lessons missed.

When you’re ready to return to the pool, email support@theaqualife.ca 3 to 4 weeks before you’d like your child to start and we will send you options for available classes.

Payment will be processed immediately to reserve your spot, with the payment schedule returning to the 20th in the month that follows.

Makeup Classes

Due to limited pool time, we do not offer makeup classes for those lessons you choose to miss. Similar to any other activity (such as soccer, swim lessons with the city, or hockey) participants are not afforded the opportunity to "make up" missed class time.

However, classes that are marked with an absent swimmer will be automatically available for booking as a makeup class by a currently enrolled swimmer.

Canceled Classes

While we do our best to avoid canceling classes, we may sometimes have to do so if there is a problem in the pool or an instructor is sick. If we need to cancel for any reason, we will offer a make-up lesson, or the cost of 1 class which will be credited to your account.

Feedback & Questions for Us

We aim to deliver a great learning experience for all our students. If you notice something we could improve or you feel that your child is not quite making the progress you would like, please let us know right away! We do remind parents that a child might at times project their initial discomfort in the water onto their instructor. This will sort itself out after a few lessons once they grow more comfortable. If you are unhappy with your lessons, please contact us so we can work together to come up with a solution and keep you or your child progressing in the water.

If there is ever anything you need, please don’t hesitate to send me an email at support@theaqualife.ca or give me a call at 1-833-744-2782.
