Swim Patrol – Rookie, Ranger and Star Patrol

Canadian Swim Patrol

The Lifesaving Society’s three-level Swim Patrol program further builds on participants’ swimming strokes and introduces the rescue of others in skills such as talk, throw and reach rescues, calling 911 and victim removals. Skill drills enhance capability in the water, good physical conditioning and lifesaving judgment. Content is organized into modules – Water Proficiency, First Aid, Recognition and Rescue.

The entire program is taught in the water; classroom time is not required.

Swim Patrol can be programmed to be the next step after Swimmer 6 in the Swim for Life Program and/or as part of Junior Lifeguard Club and/or as part of a Lifesaving Camp and/or as a module for Boy Scouts or Girl Guides and/or many other ways.
