How Do I Know What Group to Register For?

 Swimmers new to the club will need to be assessed by our coaches in order to be placed in a program.

  • Ages 12 & Under - See below for details.
  • Ages 13 & Over - Contact the club for an individual assessment
  • If your swimmer has previous competitive swimming experience, please contact the Cascade Office for assistance in arranging an assessment for training group placement

Cascade Swim Club provides age specific training for all of our athletes geared towards challenging each individual and developing each individual to the best of THEIR abilities.

More information can be found on our Swim School and Competitive program pages found under the Programs menu.


How Old Do You Have To Be?

The Cascade Swim Club starts swimmers at 4 years-old (*ability to float on their own and put their face in the water are our minimum requirements), and everyone in between, all the way up to post-Varsity athletes competing for a spot on Canada's Olympic Team!

When are Assessments?
Winter Assessments 2022:
  • In order to accommodate an overwhelming interest for Winter Session Assessments - new this session, we have created an online self assessment process . There will be no in person assessments for the Winter Session. Please watch each video carefully to find the level that is appropriate for your swimmer. Your swimmer must be able to complete each skill in the video in order to register for your selected group. These are minimum requirements along with age to register for the level. If they are not able to complete a skill shown and listed in the video, please register for the previous/lower level. To keep our groups cohesive and continually progressing it is important swimmers are registered at a skill level appropriate for them.
