Lesson Schedules

Each one-on-one class runs for thirty minutes, on Sunday Mornings. Specific session times for your child will be given to you after registration. The cost per child is $20 per season (there are 7 to 9 lessons offered per season). This charge is used to offset a portion of the pool rental costs and to remunerate the lifeguards on duty (a Canada Games Aquatic Centre employee). All instructors' time is provided on a voluntary basis.

A fully certified lifeguard, external to our program, is always on duty during classes.

S.W.A.M. classes are held at Canada Games Aquatic Centre Pool, located at 50 Union Street in Uptown Saint John, New Brunswick. We hold two seasons of lessons per year: our fall season of lessons runs from September – December while our winter session runs from January – April. We do not offer lessons during the summer.

Lessons run every week, two seasons a year:

  • Fall Season: from early October to early December
  • Winter Season: from late January to early April

We do not offer lessons during the summer.


A message regarding S.W.A.M. Saint John Fall 2020 lessons:

Dear S.W.A.M. Saint John community,

Saint john will always prioritize the safety of our students, instructors, and the families that we work with. With that being said, we are sad to announce that S.W.A.M. lessons will be cancelled for the Fall 2020 season.
