The Society defines the minimum skills needed to survive an unexpected fall into deep water. These are expressed in a skill sequence in the Canadian Swim to Survive standard:
- ROLL into deep water
- TREAD water for one minute
- SWIM 50 metres
Swim to Survive is aimed primarily at children, but people of all ages should be able to perform the Society's Swim to Survive standard.

Swim to Survive Plus builds on the skills taught in Swim to Survive. The + (plus) means participants learn:
- how to ROLL, TREAD and SWIM WITH CLOTHES ON.
- how to help a friend in deep water without putting themselves in danger (TALK, REACH, THROW).
- basic physical fitness concepts through interval training and a fitness swim.
Swim to Survive+ is geared toward presenting real-life situations for children in Grade 7.
