The cost of each child swimming for the season actually totals far in excess of our registration fees. In order to offset these costs, there are volunteer and fundraising commitments that will incur penalties if not fulfilled. See Pledge of Commitment form. This must be filled out in entirety and received by us prior to your child getting in the pool.
Please print, sign, and return the Personal Information Protection & Electronic Documents Act Consent form.

Time and Team Commitments
Starting May 1st the team will begin practicing. Meets are held on six weekends beginning May 26th. The season concludes with the Regional Swim Meet (open to all swimmers) on August 11th and 12th and the Provincial Swim Meet (for qualifying swimmers) on August 17th - 19th.
The team doesn't have a mandatory attendance policy for practices or meets. However, we do encourage each swimmer to participate in at least 3 swim meets during the season, as well as Regionals.
Other than the coaches, the team is run 100% with volunteers. Each family is responsible for volunteering to help out to ensure that everyone plays their part. In order that each family completes their volunteer commitment, a deposit of $250 per family will be collected, and volunteering completed by each family will be tracked. For a list of the volunteer positions available please see volunteer position chart.
The parent handbook contains all the specific information regarding the team; how it operates, policies, and further information on both fundraising and volunteer commitments.
