So you want to be a Club Swimmer?

KCS Swim Lessons-(Silver/Gold) to Novice...
Now that you’ve completed the silver or gold level of the KCS Swim Program and learned the basics of your four strokes and some fundamental racing skills like starts, turns and streamlining, its time to put them to use by joining the Novice group of Kamloops Classic Swimming's Club swimming!

 

Red Cross Lessons to Novice...
If you have reached the top levels of the City's Red Cross program, call us for a free Swim Club tryout.

 


The Life of a Novice Swimmer…it's all about learning through fun!

Practices: Novice practice times are 3:30-4:45 pm Mon/Wed/Fri mid-Sept to mid-June. Swimmers can choose any 2 of the 3 practice times, or all three - at no extra charge!

Jamborees: Designed specifically for Novice and Junior swimmers, Jamborees are fun, one-day (most often) swim meets. Only novices and swimmers that have a timed swim in the 200 metre individual medley that is slower than 4 minutes can attend Jamborees.

The main focus of these swim meets is to:

  1. Have fun! Gathering with young swimmers from other cities, our swimmers will experience a fun team atmosphere focused on achieving "personal best" performances in the pool. This is a great opportunity to bond with new friends and build new skills.
  2. Give swimmers a chance to show what they’ve learned in practice and how that hard work is turning them into faster, more skilled and efficient swimmers. The more they practice, the more proud of their accomplishments they become.

After 6 months- 2yrs many swimmers will be able to swim the 200IM in less than 4:00 minutes, they will qualify for the 2-day regional meets if they choose the competitive stream.
