How old does my child need to be to join Swim Club? How can we join?

  • Your child needs to be at least 6 years old and have completed Swimmer 4 or be able to swim one length of the pool. New swimmers need to attend Rookie Camp (you can register online under Events) so the coaches can assess their ability and the swimmers get a chance to try out swim club. At the end of the week the coaches will let you know if your child is ready to join and swim club and which group would be the best fit.

How long is the Swim Club season?

  •  The season runs from September to the end of June. 

Is there a Parent Information Meeting at the start of the year?

  • Yes! We are holding a Parent Information Meeting for returning swimmers, time and date to be announced. The Parent Information Meeting for new swimmers will be held after Rookie Camp is complete.

What happens if I only partially fulfill my volunteer requirement?

  • If you don't fully complete the volunteer requirement, your volunteer deposit cheque will be cashed and you will be provided a refund cheque for the amount you did complete. You can also choose to provide a new cheque for the amount you owe and we will return your original deposit cheque. The volunteer coordinator will discuss your options with you prior to depositing your cheque.

Can I fundraise/volunteer MORE than I signed up for to help reduce my fees even further?

  • Unfortunately we cannot offer this option this season. However if finances are a barrier to registration please speak with our Board of Directors President (Kerry) for potential options (email: [email protected]

Is my swimmer required to attend swim meets?

  • No. We offer both pre-competitive and competitive options. If your child is a competitive swimmer, you can choose which meets you would like to attend. Please note that some meets have restrictions on who can enter (eg. certain ages only or qualifying times required). We require a minimum of 6 swimmers registered in a swim meet for our club to participate. You will recieve email notification when a swim meet is ready for sign up.
