This group is designed to incorporate training for individuals 18 years of age and older for both recreation and higher level competitiveness in Masters swimming and also to improve strokes, speed and endurance for the swimming portion of triathlons. It does not include any discipline other than swim specific training. Last year, members of this group went on to compete at the Canadian Masters Nationals and the FINA World Masters Championships, as well as various triathlon and Ironman races throughout the season.
The Canadian Dolphin Swim Club is pleased to offer training between September and June out of the Vancouver Aquatic Centre at 1050 Beach Avenue. Entry to the pool is through the side doors by the east parking lot.
For the 2021/2022 season, weekend practices will be held on Sundays at the Britannia Pool at 1661 Napier Street.
This group offers varying lane training that is geared towards keeping swimmers moving as well as offering swim instruction at the same time. We will work with the lanes to the best of our ability, in order to provide the most appropriate training for people of varying abilities.
***This is not a "learn to swim" program and our members should be able to swim, at a minimum, 6 X 100m (Long Course) @ 2:40 and 10 X 50m @ 1:20.
For insurance purposes, all members of this group must be registered with the Masters Swim Assn of BC. Membership in MSABC will allow you to compete under the CDSC banner at sanctioned Masters meets.
The first practice of the season will be on September 14, 2021 at the Vancouver Aquatic Centre. More information and registration information may be found on our Masters registration page. Please register online before coming to your first practice, as you will not be able to get in the water until the coaches have confirmed your online registration.
Swimming is the number one sport in the world for allowing athletes to recover, excel and have fun. We look forward to meeting all of you and hope that your experience will be a fun one. Good luck!
