As members of the OAC, you have access to our unsupervised pool, during business hours. Children under 12 years of age are not permitted within the pool enclosure, unless accompanied by a parent or guardian that is at least 16 years of age.
Private Lessons are a one-on-one opportunity for participants of all ages and abilities to work toward their goals with a qualified Red Cross instructor. Small groups of participants of a similar swimming ability may register for semi- private lessons. Participants must register together; the OAC does not match pairs.
Whether you simply wish to learn how to swim or would like to streamline your strokes, we offer Private or Semi-Private Lessons tailored to your goals:
Red Cross Swim Basics
* For adults and teens who are not comfortable in the water
Developing comfort in the water through basic flotation, movement and breathing skills for shallow and deep water. Swimmers will be able to successfully swim 3 x 5m front swim upon completion of Red Cross Swim Basics.
Red Cross Swim Strokes
* For those who are comfortable in the water and want to learn stroke technique
Stroke(s) are chosen in consultation with the instructor and developed according to the Red Cross Swim progressions and performance criteria. The Water Safety instructor assesses incoming stroke ability and sets goals with swimmers for distance and stroke development.
