H2O Adventure + Fitness Centre

Ages 13+

Learn the four components of water rescues — judgment, knowledge, skill and fitness.

Students learn self-rescue techniques; defense and release methods; and tows and carries in preparation for challenging rescues involving conscious and unconscious victims, including spinal injuries and circulatory emergencies. Lifesavers develop stroke efficiency and endurance in a timed swim (500m in 15 min.)

Bronze Medallion is a Lifesaving Society (LS) certification offered through the YMCA.
