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.

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 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.

Each of teams within the two programs practice and perform a routine at The CBS Silhouettes Annual Water Show. The synchro season is 10 months long, from September through June. Throughout the season, members of each program take part in assessments in our home pool, as well as competitions that happen locally and across the country. Teams have won a full range of medals from Bronze to Gold at competition, and The Silhouettes have proudly sent club members to the Canada Winter Games and the NL Summer Games.
