Important Huntsville’s Swimming Lesson Update

The Canadian Red Cross has decided to wind down its involvement in aquatic programs. As a result the Town of Huntsville is transitioning to the swim and lifeguard training and programs of the Lifesaving Society of Canada. This means that our programs and program names have changed.

Finding the Right Level for Your Participant

The following list outlines the program transition information, the old program name and the new equivalent program for Fall 2022.

Please click the appropriate link to see dates and times and to register your youth.
