The Rookie, Ranger and Star Patrol program has three modules to include water proficiency, recognition and rescue, and first aid. The Canadian Swim Program (CSP) provides:

  • Integration of the CSP into existing learn-to-swim programs (Swim for Life, Red Cross, I Can Swim, and YMCA programs).
  • Swimming, rescue and first aid skills necessary to prepare candidates for success in the bronze medal programs.
  • Programming for customers such as summer camps or schools in conjunction with school-based swimming programs.
