Competitive Swimming Program

Our competitive groups are designed to introduce young people to the sport of swimming as a means of fitness, self-improvement, and fun. Programs run from September to July or August (qualifiers).  Fees will include Swim Ontario membership and insurance fees.  A variety of competitive levels are available ranging from pre-competitive, local, regional, provincial and national. The level of intensity of the program is designed to increase based on a swimmer’s age, experience, achievement of personal goals and program aims.

Age Group 1 – Age 8+
