Assessments

All new swimmers (including siblings of current swimmers) that cannot provide proof of completion for the minimum level of Swim Kids listed must be assessed prior to registration. 
 

NEW: Assessments for July on every Tuesday from 6:15 - 7:15pm at Vancouver Aquatic Centre.
 

During the assessment, our coach will be assessing the swimmer's current ability in the water. After your child has been assessed, our registrar will contact you through email and inform you the group your child qualifies for.
 

At this time, all swimmers must be able to swim at least 25m unassisted (SK4 or higher).
