Swimming Lessons Descriptions

Parent & Tot 1

Splish, splash, laugh - water can be so much fun! Babies just love to play in water. Parents with 4-12 month old babies will explore the water together under the watchful eyes of their instructor. They'll learn how to safely enter and exit the water together. Parents will learn how to safely support their child while they discover water!

Parent & Tot 2

Water play - get set, get wet! Instructor lead sessions help parents with 12-24 month old children safely explore water together. Parents are taught how to support their child while floating and kicking. They can celebrate together when they can get their face wet and blow bubbles for the first time.

Parent & Tot 3

Just watch them grow! At 2-3 years these almost independent toddlers are really ready to explore: Getting in, getting out, going under and floating under the watchful eye of their parents and instructor.


Preschool 1

These preschoolers learn to get in and out of the water safely. They'll learn to move safely in shallow water and use a lifejacket to be comfortable with their floats and glides.

Preschool 2

These youngsters will explore the water learning to submerge and exhale underwater. Buoyant aids are used to help them discover rollovers glides and flutter kicks.

Preschool 3

These preschoolers will master their floats, glides and short swims on their front and back (2-3m). They'll be able to pick up objects from the waist deep water and use their lifejackets to jump and roll into the deep end.

Preschool 4

These capable preschoolers will strengthen their flutter kicks and try swimming front crawl. They'll start to learn how to support themselves in deep water and in the end they'll do solo jumps and side rolls into deep water. Their lifejacket will support them while they learn to tread water and swim to safety (5-10 m) in the deep end.

Preschool 5

These skilled and independent youngsters will master short swims doing front crawl (5-10 m) and back crawl (3-5 m). They are ready to take on a forward roll into deep water with their lifejacket on and to tread water without the extra support. Here they will get their first chance to try whip kick and fitness training. 


Swimmer 1

These beginning swimmers will work on safe entries, exits and moving through the water. When ready they'll do floats, glides and kicking on their front and back without assistance. They'll evenexplore jumping into deep water and treading water with their lifejackets on.

Swimmer 2

These children will be able to jump or side roll into deep water, tread water, and swim (10-15 m) using either front crawl or back crawl. They'll try 'vertical' whip kick and begin to work on their endurance level by stepping into the world of fitness interval training.

Swimmer 3

These swimmers will dive and do forward rolls into deep water. Watch them learn handstands and front somersaults underwater. They'll work on their front crawl, back crawl and whip kick short distances and add some interval fitness training to their practice. By the end they'll be able to meet the Swim to Survive standard: Roll into deep water, tread water for 1 minute and swim 50 meters.

Swimmer 4

These swimmers will swim further with their front crawl and back crawl. They'll get introduced to breaststroke arms drills, underwater swims and front crawl sprints. Interval training will add to their fitness level.

Swimmer 5

These swimmers will try eggbeater kick, head up front crawl, and shallow dives. And just for fun try 'tuck' jumps and underwater back somersaults. They'll easily go the distance with a strong front crawl, back crawl and breaststroke.

Swimmer 6

These swimmers will master eggbeater and scissor kicks, front crawl, breaststroke and back crawl. With the interval training and sprint racing drills they'll be ready to make the 300 m endurance workout. And just for fun they'll try stride jumps and compact jumps. Next step: on to the Canadian Swim Patrol program from Swimmer 6.

What’s Happening

  • Addition & Renovation Verses New Hall

    Mount Pleasant Community Association Community Hall Addition & Renovation Verses New Hall Our Original Community Hall was constructed in 1959 and had the west side added in 1989, so we are dealing with essentially a 60-year-old structure. It has approximately 6500 square feet including the upper and lower halls. If you have had any involvement with the building, you recognize that it is very cut up and dated. About five years ago, during my Presidency, we established a need to renovate and add on to the Hall. We had Conceptual drawings prepared to: add a Board Room; Replace the Washrooms; Add an Office; Add on to and refurbish the Kitchen; Do Upgrades to the Basement; Replace the Furnaces and Rooftop Heating and Cooling Units. We did not have Construction Drawings, so we never gathered formal quotes, but our Committee, who are in the Construction Industry had put together a Best Guess of $1.250.000.00 to do the project. Any of the replacement renovations would be eligible for Provincial and City Grants that would recap either 50% of the costs and in some cases 75% of the costs. Any new construction would not qualify for any Grant Monies. When we went to pass a motion to expend more funds to move this renovation along, we had kick back from some of the newer Board members who did not have any of the background on the original concept. Their concern was investing that much money on an old building, would we not be better to build a completely new building, so I was tasked with putting the costs together to build a new hall where the east parking lot is and then razing the old hall and installing a new parking lot there. With the assistance of Catherine Gulinao, our NPC Officer from the City of Calgary, we went over what is required from the City to get approval for building a new structure as well as putting me in touch with representatives from other CA’s that are currently in the midst of constructing new facilities. With that in mind I will put together the Pros and Cons of both Renovating & Addition verses building a Completely New Hall. Renovation & Addition Pros: -We have the money required to complete this project (with the addition of Grants) in the bank. -It would require very little volunteer input -The Hall has some historical attachment for some long-time community residents. Cons: -We would lose some rental income while the renovations were going on. -We would still have a cut up building that may not have all the facilities to meet the needs of the current community residences. - We will have to spend $1,176,000.00 over the next 25 years (in 2018 $) to maintain the hall and replace worn out equipment.  As compiled by Stantec Consulting Inc. -We will still be dealing with a 60-year-old structure. New Hall Pros: -Building will be brand new so we will not have to spend a large amount maintaining the hall for a minimum of 5 years. -Building will be designed to meet the needs of the current community  Membership. -We would not lose rental income while the hall was being built. -A new building might give the community a boost and have more involvement with a hall that meets the members needs. Cons: -Costs. We would need to raise between $1.5 and $2.5 million to complete the project, depending on the size and amenities included. -Would make it farther to walk for Sportsplex users who currently park in the east lot. Now that you have some of the background to this issue we are asking all Community Residence to fill out a Questionnaire, that was compiled by our Community Member Jack Lucas, so we can gauge the Communities feeling about Renovation Verses New and to see if we can get a consensus of how the majority of the Community wants to proceed. We would ask that you take the survey online, http://bit.ly/2RZWPsU  or if you do not have computer access please call the Hall Manager, Nickie @ 403-282-1314, on Tuesdays and Thursdays and we will deliver a copy to your door. On behalf of MPCA I would like to thank you in advance for taking the time to read this as well as doing the survey, so we know where to guide the CA in the coming years. Yours, Murray Anderson, Past President and Hall Director -

There are lots of options to choose from: bridge Scrabble crib euchre dominoes indoor badminton (if you'd like to get moving) In summer, we can go outside for bocce and horseshoes. Of course, we're eager to learn other games. If you would like to introduce one to the group, please bring any supplies needed and teach us the basics. We'll supply the coffee, tea, and water.  If you'd like to bring a donation for the Food Bank, we'll add it to MPCA's food drive boxes.
