SPORT1  (7-12 yrs)

The SPORT1 level is appropriate for swimmers who have completed the jTOEST Learn2Swim program and Aimee is recommending that they are ready to progress to this level of training. As well, SPORT1 is for swimmers who have completed introductory swim sessions with other clubs, teams, or at City programs.

Unsure what training level is right for your swimmer? Feel free to contact aimee@toest.ca to set up a swim assessment to ensure your swimmer is placed in the program appropriate for their skill level.

To train at the SPORT1 level, athletes need:

  • a training suit (jammers for boys, and one piece suits for girls),

  • fins specific to competitive swimming (see image), and well fitted goggles are critical.

For dryland, athletes are to have their swim suit on, with shorts & t-shirt over top, plus non-marking running shoes.

Fins for Swimming

Training is held at Cedar Springs

The Junior Learn2Swim Instructor is Coach Aimee

Aimee is an accomplished Masters Swimmer (2018 Ontario Age Group Champion in 100 & 200BR), an accomplished triathlete (Qualified for 2019 Triathlon Worlds and 2019 Multisport Worlds), and a Certified Lifesaving Society Lifeguard.  Having almost drowned as a child at a neighbourhood pool party, Aimee recalls what its like not to have the skills to be water safe. This is why teaching swimming is important to Aimee: she believes swimming is a life skill every child should have.

What better way for a child to learn to love swimming than with a mature individual, with an experienced athlete, with a life saving professional who understands how and why swimming skills truly are life skills. Click here to link to our Team webpage, to learn more about Aimee.

Refund Policy:  jTOEST DOES NOT provide refunds. With programs focused on quality, on learning, on athlete’s making significant progress, hi athlete turnover rate would compromise coaching and the experience of all athletes. We ask that prior to registering that all commitments, calendars, etc… are reviewed to avoid joining when the risk is that the athlete will miss many sessions and/or the athlete will have to drop out. Once an athlete registers, they have a reserved spot in a lane for the entire duration of the program.
