Club History

Club History

The Sudbury Laurentian Swim Club (SLSC) was established during the early '70s and affiliated with the Canadian Amateur Swimming Association in 1973.

Since its beginning, the Club has not only grown in membership (from the original 12 to over 70 at present), but also in accomplishments.  With its carefully structured system, the Club has gained prominence regionally, provincially, nationally and internationally.  This is evident by the fact that SLSC has won many regional championships over the years, became two times Ontario Champions, finished in the top ten at the national championship, and for several years, the Club has placed several swimmers on the Canadian National Team.  As members of the Ontario All Stars and the Canadian National Team, our swimmers have represented Sudbury and its region and Canada in such places as the United States, England, Holland, France, Israel, Germany, Japan, Puerto Rico, Sweden, Australia, New Zealand, Ecuador, Brazil and the former Soviet Union.

Individual accomplishments are far too many to list here; however, they range from regional to world records, and civic recognition to world athlete of the year.  Without the combined effort and support of the swimmers, coaching staff, Laurentian University, and parents, our expectations and high standards may not have been reached!
