Intro

Under 10 years old as of December 31, 2022
1 practice/week
Max: 5 swimmers per coach

The Intro group consists of swimmers aged between 6 and 9 that show a love for swimming and wish to go beyond traditional swim lessons to learn more about the sport of competitive swimming.  Most of our competitive swimmers get their start in our intro program.  Each Intro session is based on a minimum 10 weeks.  During each session, there may be practices that are cancelled for statutory holidays, etc.  The final week in each session allows for the scheduling of any make up practices.  Each session may also include, depending on scheduling, an option for the Intro swimmer to participate in one of the club's In-House meets.

For New Families:
Swimmers at this level are typically "deep water safe" meaning they are comfortable in the water and are able to swim 5-10m on their own. Swimmers who have completed swim level Divers/Seal (YMCA), Level 2/E/F (Kitchener) or Splash 3 (Waterloo) are well suited to this group.

There is a sessional registration for the group:

  • Fall Session
  • Winter Session
  • Spring Session
