The Collingwood Clippers Swim Club was established as an Esso Swim Canada program in September 1985. In September 1986 the Club was registered with Swim Ontario as an entry level swim club. We were named the Collingwood Y Clippers. The Club progressed from a developmental club to a competitive club in 1989 and attended their first team championship competition. The Club name changed from Collingwood Y Clippers to the Collingwood Clippers Swim Club.

The Collingwood Clippers Swim Club (CCSC) is a competitive, community based club, whose purpose is to promote an interest in competitive swimming and to develop the fullest potential of each swimmer. Our club is an Age Group program targeted at swimmers ages 6 to 18 years old. Being involved with CCSC gives athletes the opportunity to learn about responsibility, hard work and co-operation in a way that is fun, promotes self-esteem and excellence. 


By collective pooling of resources such as pool space, educational tools, and training resources the Collingwood Clippers has been able to produce swimmers who have qualified and placed at Huronia Regionals, Ontario Festivals, Ontario AA Championships, Ontario Provincial Championships, Speedo Eastern Championships, Canadian Junior Swimming Championships and Canadian Swimming Championships. We continue to applaud our swimmer’s achievements as we move forward and strive for success! 

CCSC is a parent run, professionally coached swimming organization whose first commitment is to the needs of the swimmers. We provide an opportunity for boys and girls of different ages and abilities to be part of a competitive swim club. CCSC offers a program in which the swimmers learn the four competitive swimming strokes, starts and turns to produce a well rounded and capable swimmer. The life skills that our swimmers learn during their time with CCSC (responsibility, dedication, work ethic & positive attitude) are valuable and will be useful for the rest of their lives.


The Collingwood Clippers Swim Club serves the town of Collingwood as well as surrounding townships. CCSC swims out of the Collingwood Centennial Aquatic Centre from October through June with the option of July.




To develop the character traits, technical skills and intense desire necessary for maximum realization of each individual's potential and to aid in the pursuit of excellence in the sport of competitive swimming.
