The Easter Seals NL Swimming Program provides participants with a 30-minute one-on-one volunteer-led swimming session each week that focuses on the individual goals of the participant. These goals can vary anywhere from learning to put your face in the water, and building strength in your legs, to practicing swimming in the deep end. The sessions are not meant to be a structured swimming lesson but rather focus on individual swimming goals.
Our volunteers work closely with participants to make sure they are having fun while reaching these swimming goals. Volunteers as a part of this program are not certified instructors, however, they are confident swimmers and share the love of water with our participants.
Volunteers and participants are paired based on the goals set by the swimmer, and the strength of our volunteers.
Our swimming program is delivered weekly on Mondays, this program is broken down into semesters running Fall, Winter, Spring, and Summer in 8-12 weeks blocks.
Dates: October 16th to December 11th, 2023
Location: Ches Penney Family YMCA (35 Ridge Road)
