Event Type

Swimming is an excellent form of exercise that keeps the heart and lungs healthy, improves strength and flexibility, increases stamina, and most important of all – Swimming Saves Lives.

Kamloops has more than 100 lakes or rivers within a one-hour drive which are ideal for swimming, canoeing, kayaking, stand-up paddle-boarding or water activities. Students coming to TRU want to enjoy these outdoor activities, but many do not know how to swim and are at risk of drowning.

To reduce the risk of such fatalities, the TRUSU Services Committee has partnered with the Canada Games Aquatic Centre to offer Swim lessons to students at TRU and teach this important life skill so that they can enjoy life in Canada.
