In Motion
                                 Tecumseh Parks and Recreation is pleased to be an “in motion” community.
                                 Under the auspices of SWARG (South West Area Recreational Guild), and with
                                 strong commitment from our local Health Unit, we are following a comprehensive
                                 community-wide strategy to improve health through physical activity.

Photographs
In order to publicize programs, the Parks and Recreation Department may take photos of people involved in various
programs and events. The photos will be used in Town publications, and are not for sale. If you do not wish your
picture or your child’s picture to be used, please inform us in writing.
Our facilities are open to the public and frequently media personnel visit unannounced to
take photos and video. If your child is a regular participant in our programs and you do
not want his/her image published, please inform the staff during registration. We will
make every effort possible to ensure that your child is not photographed or filmed by
visiting media.

Swimmer Program
The Lifesaving Society’s Swimmer Program ensures your child’s
continued development in learning to swim. Swimmer progressions
accommodate children 5 to 12 years of age, including beginners and
swimmers who want to build on the basics. LSS stresses plenty of in-
water practice to develop solid swimming strokes and skills and
incorporates Lifesaving Society Water Smart® education in all swimmer
levels.

The Swimmer 2 level is split into two different sections: Beginner and
Advanced. The beginner program is for swimmers who are taking the
level for the first time, while the advanced program focuses on
strengthening techniques in order to effectively prepare for the next level.
