Online registration is now open. Below are a few tips when completing your registration. If you did not make one of the selections during registration or you need to change roster group based on training days or have any other registration questions, please email Amy at

  1. Select a team suit and cap option.  This is mandatory for all swimmers every season, even if you signed up for the early suit order to have yours at the beginning of September. Members were not charged for that sign up with the intension fees would be collected at registration.


  1. Select the appropriate Swim BC competitive fee based on your swimmers age. If your swimmer is in Mini Squad or Juniors the non-competitive fee is automatically added to your registration. Super Juniors and up will need to select the fee as it’s based on age not roster group.


  1. Training Calendar.

Juniors 1 and Super Juniors 1 train Monday/Wednesday. 

Juniors 2 and Super Juniors 2 train Tuesday/Thursday.  

For those groups select the roster group based on your practice time preference.  For mini squad select your group and day preference at registration and then email your time request to Hilary at

September Team Practice:  September 28th

This is our first Team Practice of the season!!  Team Practice is held on the last Friday of the month.  It is a great opportunity to have some hard work and fun in the pool.  Although each month has a different activity, we often have peer teaching so there is some team bonding and interaction between our younger and older swimmers.

Age Group, Intermediates and Swim Academy: 3:30-5:30

Mini Squad, Juniors, Super Juniors: 4:00-5:30

We will be doing our KISU individual photos again this season.  If your swimmer missed having their photo taken in the first week, please have them wear their KISU shirt and head over to the diving boards at the beginning of practice.
