Note:  Swimming lessons are offered through the Town of Sackville's Recreation department. 

We believe swimming is not just a sport but a life skill and encourage everyone to sign your kids up for swim lessons through Sackville Swim Club.  The Sackville Swim Club (SSC) was established in September of 1975. Over the past 44 years, SSC has produced numerous top performing swimmers who have qualified for many top-tier events such as Canada Games, Junior Canadian Championships, Senior Canadian Championships and Olympic Trials.

If you have a pool membership or wish to purchase a pool membership ($170/year), the Masters Swim Club program is available for the cost of $110.00 and the whole program consisting of approximately 56 sessions. This works out to $5.00/night, if you were able to attend every session!!

If you do not have a pool membership or are unable to commit to 56 sessions, there is the option of buying a 20 session pass for $150. This works out to $7.50 per class, but you will only be paying for the classes you actually attend. This pay-as-you-go option will help provide both stability for the program, while offering flexibility to those who may be unable to make a good number of the sessions.
