2020-2021 KCS Competitive/Recreational/Masters Registration


Welcome to the Kamloops Classic Swimming Electronic Registration platform for our upcoming swim season! We are pleased to offer electronic payment processing and registration. The process is simple for both new and returning members. You'll get access to your own private account that will enable you easily declare for swim meets, sign-up for jobs, see your children's swim times histories, maintain your own contact information, and more.

  REGISTRATION OPENS AUGUST 30th, 2020 For Returning Members        SEPTEMBER 8th For New Members

 


Although the registration process will be similar to other years, there are a lot of details that are different due to COVID-19 and the renovation of the Canada Games Pool. Please pay special attention to registration details below to ensure that you are well informed of those updates.   
 

  • RETURNING SWIMMERS: Please pay special attention to ensure that you register your swimmer(s) for the correct roster group which was communicated in the recent email you received from KCS. If for some reason you did not receive an email please EMAIL the office. The system will automatically calculate which insurance your swimmer(s) needs based on their age.

 

  • NEW SWIMMERS: We are so happy that your children are excited about Club swimming! We are trying hard to make room for them in the upcoming season. However due to the ongoing pool space limitations until the Canada Games Pool reopens, new swimmer registrations are delayed until September 8th. At that time we will reassess the available space based on our returning swimmer levels and lane space. Please DO NOT register before contacting our office . Call 250-828-3660 or EMAILMasters swimmers are welcome to register without a prior assessment if they meet the age criteria and can swim 25m comfortably in deep water.

Our Return to Swimming Plan is based on current public health guidance.
