The Club


Swim Ottawa is a non-profit organization formed to promote both pre-competitive and competitive swimming for all Ottawa residents and eligible non-resident participants. Swim Ottawa has two streams. The pre-competitive stream (Minnows, Guppies and Whales) practice primarily at the Soloway JCC pool and one practice Saturday afternoon at Brewer pool. The Competitive program includes Senior, Junior A, Junior B, and Development levels. They practice at various City of Ottawa pools primarily at Brewer and one practice each at Plant and the University of Ottawa.


Our mission at SWOTT is to remain a medium sized club where we can bond and grow as an intimate team and still produce some of Ottawa’s strongest swimmers. We believe in Long Term Athlete Development and not only do we believe in this, we stay true to this. Our hope is to support all our swimmers to enjoy a lifetime of swimming.

It is the goal of Swim Ottawa to:

  1. Provide safe, healthful exercise and an opportunity to practice social skills in a positive environment for all participants.
  2. Help each swimmer realize their potential as an aquatic athlete through instruction in stroke technique, starts, turns and endurance given by qualified coaches.
  3. Develop the qualities of good sportsmanship, self-discipline, and endurance.
  4. Provide a way for families to volunteer and contribute in the Swim Ottawa tradition.
