About

Welcome to the St. Albert Sailfish Swim Club.

The St. Albert Sailfish Swim Club is a summer swim club that was formed in 1968. We are a not-for-profit club run by volunteers and supported by membership and fundraising.

The club swims from the beginning of May thru to mid August. The club swims at the Fountain Park Pool in May, July and August and outdoors at the Grosvenor Pool in June.  The Sailfish Swim Club consists of approximately 90 swimmers. The club ranges from the ages of 5 through to 17 as well in ability. Our club is affiliated with the Alberta Summer Swim Association (ASSA), a division of Swim Alberta, the provincial governing body for competitive swimming. ASSA provides administration, communication, insurance and governance for summer swim clubs. A part of the registration fees paid out ensure that all swimmers are registered with ASSA and receive the Provincial Insurance offered by ASSA.

About Us

Welcome to the St. Albert Sailfish Swim Club. The Sailfish began in the summer of 1968, training out of Grosvenor and Fountain park pools, and has been a fixture of the community for many years. We invite you to join the fun and excitement of our club and become a part of our history of success!

The St. Albert Sailfish offer programs available to swimmers who are a minimum of 5 years of age by May 1st and at minimum able to swim 1 length of the pool unassisted. The season starts each year on the first Monday of May and typically goes to the third weekend in August. Training is evenings Monday through Friday, with some mornings in July and August depending on your group placement. Swimmers will be initially assessed during the first week of training and placed into groups determined by their skill level and age.
