If you want your child to learn to swim in Toronto you can count on Buckler Aquatics, a pioneer in the field of teaching swimming to infants and toddlers. More than 2,000 clients go through our Mississauga, North York and Scarborough locations weekly, and over 100,000 swim lessons are taught over a year period. Over 90% of the aquatics staff members were Buckler swimmers themselves. In fact, many of the current students are children and grandchildren of parents that were Buckler ‘Tads’ once themselves.
Following the Buckler TAD initial instruction, we teach the Canadian Red Cross Swim Kids program (through level 10), with an emphasis placed on stroke style, endurance and distance swimming. We then teach the Lifesaving Society Canadian Swim Patrol and the Bronze Awards programs. We believe that the combination of these two programs, and the unique Buckler Aquatics teaching techniques is what best prepares our swimmers for a lifetime of safe enjoyment in and around water.
Swimming is one of the few physical activities that can be started in infancy. Billions of new neurons are created when baby plays in water. It gives children the added advantage of building muscle tone, coordination, discipline, comprehension and confidence in and around water. Swimming is a life skill that can be enjoyed by the whole family, while keeping you healthy and fit at the same time. Swimming is a great workout for your entire body and specifically the cardiovascular system.
Most of Canadians participate in some form of aquatics activity each year. Unfortunately, in pursuing water-based activities, drowning and aquatics accidents claim the lives of over 400 individuals every year. This makes drowning and water-related fatalities the third-leading cause of accidental death in the country to those under the age of 60. Swimming is a life skill, much like riding a bicycle or learning how to use a computer. Even if kids don't go to a swimming pool regularly, they should be at ease near any body of water.
