Swim Secure's owner, Rob, is a busy guy. He's a student of philosophy and environmental geography at the University of Toronto, he edits two student journals, and he volunteers as an emergency responder. Thanks to the Youth Employment Services program, he also teaches swimming lessons—something he's enjoyed doing for more than eight years.
As the owner of his own business, Rob is free to design his own curriculum, and he particularly favors
parent-child classes. He puts parents in the pool with infants and toddlers, initially focusing his attention on teaching them how to teach. Adults then gently coax and guide their children, helping them develop swimming fundamentals such as diving and sneaking up on unsuspecting antelopes.
Forest Hill Swim School owner Michael Domb can move through water better than most people can move on land. A world-champion triathlete with a background in open-water swimming, Michael established this school to channel his impressive experience into a program where kids can learn how to swim and exercise safely. Around him, Michael has built a team of certified instructors to help lead lessons at the school's city-based facility. There, a 21-yard outdoor pool, which is filled with saltwater to prevent chlorine-induced irritation and bacteria growth, provides students with a secluded place in which to master the fundamentals and prepare for the Marco Polo portion of the Ironman Triathlon.
Buckler Aquatics' Red Cross certified swim instructors teach kids ages six months and up the ways of the water in two large, clean, heated pools. For their youngest charges, they use the Buckler Method, a style of teaching designed for babies.
The instructors assign all swimmers to classes based on ability, providing individualized instruction in a group setting. They focus on encouragement and simple technique corrections, allowing each swimmer to proceed at his or her own pace. Parents can observe all the pool fun through a one-way window adjacent to the pool, or join in the splashing during monthly free family swims.
There's a lot of fitness packed into the 312,000-square-foot Toronto Pan Am Sports Centre. Four basketball courts and a rock-climbing wall are just the beginning. The gym also features a diving tank and three swimming pools, complete with a moveable floor to facilitate shallow-water entry. Other areas include a running track, conditioning rooms, and a four-court gym—and visitors aren't left to exercise on their own. Numerous group fitness classes are available, and the center is also home to The Canadian Sport Institute Ontario.
