Swimming Lessons

As of January 1, Red Cross will no longer be offering swimming lessons (see why here), we will be moving to the Lifesaving Society Learn to Swim Program. We understand that this may be confusing which is why we have created a lesson transition chart and descriptions of each class (see class for description) to help you determine the correct lesson to place your child in for the upcoming winter registration. If you have any questions please feel free to refer to our FAQ or contact KHS Client Services by email khs.cs@uregina.ca or by phone (306) 585-4371. 

Registration will open November 15 at 6:00 a.m. (online).
