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

  • Annual Mount Pleasant Christmas Party

  • The Survey Results Are In!

    Take a look at the survey results for the potential hall renovation or new hall. We ran this survey for several months trying to get as much feedback from all of you as possible. Here are the results. Check them out and if you have anything more to add please email: halldirector@mpca.ca   
  • PLEASE DON'T PLANT TREES ON CITY PROPERTY WITHOUT CITY PERMISSION

    Given that we recently had a local community member planted some trees in the green space on 20th Ave (Dog Park) and on the boulevard the City has provided the following key point: Trees and shrubs are regulated under the Street Bylaw and under section 68(6) : No owner or occupant of private property adjacent to a Street shall plant any trees, plants, or shrubbery of any nature on the Boulevard without first obtaining a line assignment and excavation permit from the Director, Roads. – Essentially to plant on a city boulevard you need permission from the Roads Department All trees planted by Urban Forestry are sourced in accordance with the Clean Plants Program. This insures that the plant material we receive is free from pests and disease. The introduction of unknown trees and shrubs into a greenspace could potentially bring pest or disease that has an overall impact on the urban forest. Urban Forestry would not be aware of the “ random trees” so they would not be added into our inventory system. Our tree inventory is how we determine maintenance schedules, watering schedules, and regular inspections for health and risk. Appropriate placement and planting is essential so there is no interference or damage caused to underground utilities. Proper placement also allows maintenance activities such as mowing to remain efficient, and allow enough spacing so machinery and trees are not damaged.

  • MPCA Adults Game Day

    Except the forth Wednesday of the month We all need a break at least once a week to relax and chat with other adults.  Join us every Wednesday afternoon from 1:15 to 3:15 in the Upper Hall, 602 22 Ave. NW for games of your choice.  Our games are for fun only – we're not overly competitive and we do like to enjoy some conversation while we play. 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.
