New Swim for Life programming

Starting in 2023, all swimming lessons and advanced programming at the Ponoka Aquaplex will be delivered through the Swim for Life program through the Lifesaving Society.

The Canadian Red Cross announced earlier this year that they will discontinue their swimming lessons curriculum by the end of 2022, and it will replaced by Lifesaving Society’s Swim for Life program.

To determine your child’s swim level in the Swim for Life® program, parents and guardians are encouraged to review the Canadian Red Cross to Swim for Life® transition chart at

Paper copies of the transition chart are also available at the Ponoka Aquaplex. If you are still unsure of your child’s skill level, the Ponoka Aquaplex offers free swim assessments during ‘Everyone Welcome Swims.’
