Red Cross Lesson & Swim for Life Transfer Chart

Transition your lessons to or from another municipality.

Many local municipalities, such as Burnaby and Coquitlam, follow the Red Cross swim program which differs from the New Westminster swim program you may be used to.

We recommend contacting the facility you are registered with, especially if a child has not been swimming for a while, to confirm all necessary requirements. Swim assessments may be required, and are available at no cost for most programs, to ensure you are registering for the correct level. To get started with your transition, please see the chart below.
