SEARS I Can Swim

Learn to Swim Program - I Can Swim


(For current schedule, click here)

The City of Coquitlam and HYACK Swim Club jointly run the the  "I Can Swim" Program at the City Centre Aquatic Complex (CCAC) in Coquitlam. Sears I Can Swim is an innovative learn-to-swim program of incredible quality developed by Swimming/Natation Canada. Sears I Can Swim is a program dedicated to teaching children to swim well in a fun, challenging and rewarding atmosphere. Swimming/Natation Canada has developed a program that teaches children the basics of the four swimming strokes: butterfly, backstroke, breaststroke and freestyle. As well, participants are introduced to swimming starts, turns and components of other aquatic sports.

This program is very open-ended and promotes the development of a swimmer rather than a "pass-fail" method.
