Spring Set 2014 Registration Procedure

Red Cross Swim Times for Spring Set 2014

CBS Recreation Complex Programs

We would like to inform you that the Red Cross has made small changes to ensure you and your children have an enjoyable swimming experience. We are proud to offer you the chance to participate in a revamped preschool program consisting of 8 levels including Starfish, Duck, Sea Turtle, Sea Otter, Salamander, Sunfish, Crocodile and Whale. Sea Otter was added to provide a better transition level for swimmers from Sea Turtle as they move to greater independence, as well as making it a more manageable level for new swimmers. Participants will enter Sea Otter when they have completed Sea Turtle or it is their first time in lessons. For those swimmers who are currently registered in Salamander they will continue to stay in that level until it is complete and continue to work their way through the preschool program.

 Adult Swim Program

The Conception Bay South Recreation Complex currently offers both Red Cross Swim Basics and Red Cross Swim Strokes. These swimming programs are designed to meet your individual needs. Learn to swim in Red Cross Swim Basics, develop or improve strokes in Red Cross Swim Strokes.
Register Anytime! Course offered Tuesday 8:00pm-9:00pm

Leadership Programs

We offer Bronze Cross, Bronze Medallion, Bronze Star and the Junior Lifeguard Club.

The Junior Lifeguard Club

The Junior Lifeguard Club (JLC) offers serious fun for kids 8 years and up who can swim at least 25m and tread water for 2 minutes, or those who have completed Swim Kids 8. JLC provides an action-packed challenge for kids who love the water but who want more than “lessons.” JLC is for quick learners, those between levels or programs and who thrive in an energetic learning environment.

Bronze Star

Bronze Star provides training for your body and your brain. You’ll become a stronger swimmer. You’ll learn CPR and practice problem-solving and decision-making.
The Bronze Star award is the pre-Bronze Medallion training standard and it provides excellent preparation for success in obtaining the Bronze Medallion award. In Bronze Star, participants develop problem-solving and decision-making skills as individuals and as partners. They learn cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), and they develop Water Smart® confidence and lifesaving skills. Prerequisites: Completed Swim Kids 10.

Bronze Medallion

Bronze medallion teaches an understanding of the lifesaving principles embodied in the four components of water rescue education — judgment, knowledge, skill and fitness. Rescuers learn tows, carries and release methods in preparation for challenging rescues of increased risk. Lifesavers learn to respond to increasingly complex resuscitation situations involving conscious and unconscious victims with an obstructed airway. Lifesavers develop stroke efficiency and endurance in a timed swim. Bronze Medallion is a prerequisite for the Bronze Cross Award.
Prerequisites: Minimum age 13 years old.

Bronze Cross

Bronze Cross is designed for lifesavers who want the challenge of more advanced training including an introduction to safe supervision in aquatic facilities. Bronze Cross teaches the difference between lifesaving and lifeguarding, the principles of emergency procedures and teamwork. Lifesavers learn how to rescue a spinal-injured victim and a pulse-less victim. Bronze Cross is the prerequisite award for all advanced training programs in lifesaving, lifeguarding and leadership.
Prerequisites: Bronze Medallion (does not have to be current), 14 years of age within 30 days of the exam.

Shallow Water Fitness

SWF is a great way to have fun, exercise, get in shape and get out of the house to meet some new people. We are pleased to now offer our program 3 nights a week. This class goes Monday, Wednesday and Thursday from 8-9 pm. This program is by registration for 8 weeks. You can choose to come 1, 2 or even 3 nights per week. If spots are available we do still offer a drop-in fee. But over the past few months this program has been filled to capacity.

We also have an afternoon Shallow Water Fitness Class on Monday’s from 2:30-3:25pm. This program has been operating on a drop-in basis.

School or Group Swimming Lessons

We currently have space available during weekdays to provide our exciting Red Cross swim program to your school. We offer very competitive prices, great instruction and a highly qualified staff who can meet and exceed your expectations.

The times we have available for school lessons or swims run from 9am to 12 Monday to Friday depending on the number of children you have. Please be advised that our times available are subject to change depending on staffing.

 Birthday Parties/Pool Rentals

The CBS Recreation Complex is the ideal place to host your child’s birthday party, a conference or function. Our rentals include 1 hour of pool time and 1 hour of party room time. If you are not interested in the pool portion or the upstairs portion we do offer several options to suit your needs. In the party room you have access to the full kitchen, which includes an oven, microwave and refrigerator. We take the liberty of setting up the covered tables and chairs.

CBS Wall Bangers Junior Squash Program

Squash is one of the fastest growing sports in the world, and is on the list for inclusion in the 2020 Olympics. Squash is affordable, easy to play, and accessible. It also helps build endurance and muscular strength, and is an excellent cardiovascular workout.

The Junior Squash Program offered at the CBS Recreation Complex is designed for competitive and recreational players ages 10 and up. We have also recently incorporated our Early Start Squash Program which is designed for children 6 to 9 years of age. There is no equipment necessary, other than sneakers and shorts, the racket and goggles are provided. The program is offered at different times throughout the week, and a two week free trial basis can be arranged before any commitments are made. Private and semi-private squash lessons can be taken from one of our certified squash coaches by not only juniors but adults too. Times for the lesson can be negotiated between player(s) and coach.
