Graduates of the Program
The Leadership Aquatic program helped me to develop my swimming and lifesaving skills. I earned multiple certifications and received a job working with the City of Guelph as a result of the program. I found the course very informative and loved all the hands on learning that we did. I would highly recommend this program to anyone hoping to become a lifeguard or swimming instructor. I also loved that we received two grade 12 credits and saved a ton of money by taking the course through the school. LAP prepared me well for my future endeavours.
Great program, I would highly recommend it. Ms. Craig makes learning fun.
Participants of LAP Swim Lessons
I loved my LAP swim instructor. She was really nice and made the lessons fun.
Everyone enjoyed the swim lessons. It was much better than the Shark program or going to school.
LAP helped me to become a better leader. It taught me the importance of preparing detailed lesson plans and how to provide positive feedback. I especially enjoyed the opportunity to practice my skills by teaching swim lessons to elementary students.
LAP was the course I looked forward to the most during my semester. It was well worth my time and effort. There was loads of pool time, proper training, assistance and valuable lessons. The highlights for me included: being hired as part of City of Guelph's aquatic staff, HUGE reduced costs on all certifications (from bronze star to NLS and swim instructor's). I had the opportunity to; expand my swimming abilities, learn emergency first aid, learn what it actually means to be a leader, become a lifeguard and swim instructor and grow as a person! I wish I could go back and take the course again simply for the experience.
I was really scared but my instructor was very encouraging and kind with me.
The games at the end of class were really cool.
