Series 2 - Weekly Camps

July 26 - 30

August 3 - 6 (short week - reduced price)

August 9 - 13

August 16 - August 20

Series 2 camps are one-week camps that run at two outdoor pools - Ourland Park Outdoor Pool (off Islington south of Evans) and Amos Waites Park Outdoor Pool (near Lakeshore & Mimico), two indoor pools - Keele Community Centre Pool (Keele north of Bloor) and Toronto Pan Am Sports Centre ("TPASC", Morningside Ave & 401), as well as dryland at Tom Riley Park. Finally, one online zoom yoga session per week is also included.

Swimmers must receive an invitation to join, as groups are pre-assigned.  Series 1 group assignments are still valid. Coaches may make some adjustments between Series 1 and Series 2.

All LSC swimmers with accounts in good standing are eligible for these camps. You must have registered in August 2020 or joined the club since that date to be eligible as an existing LSC member.

LSC swimmers and "LSC Fundamentals" swimmers who were not active after September 1 2020 are welcome to join, but must first register for the LSC 2021-2022 season first (this process takes a few days) and speak to a coach to be invited to a specific group.

This program may be opened to non-LSC swimmers if space permits.

If you would like to participate but have not received an invitation, please email [email protected].

Fundamentals Camps
Coach Donna
12-20 participants

LSC will be operating two separate Fundamentals Swim Camps during series 2 - outdoor and indoor.  The outdoor camp ($150/week) runs from 9:30 - 10:15 a.m. daily at Amos Waites Pool, and the indoor camp ($80/week) runs Tuesdays and Fridays from 1pm to 2pm at Keele Pool.  The camps aim to provide young swimmers, either starting their competitive career or at the pre-competitive level, the option to learn accelerated swimming skills. The program will focus on improving technical swimming skills, to prepare swimmers for LSC's year-long Fundamentals program or direct entry into LSC's competitive swim program. Swimmers must be able to pass the City of Toronto's "Deep End Test" to be eligible for the program.  Additional information and registration details will be posted to the site this weekend. Existing LSC members will have one day to register before the program is opened to the public for registration.  See our Fundamentals Page for details (coming this weekend).  

Series 3 - End of Summer Camp

A special program will be offered from August 23rd - August 30th. Details will be posted soon.  LSC will not operate any programming from September 1 through September 3rd.

Series 1 - Weekly Camps 

July 5 - 9

July 12 - 16

Series 1 camps are one-week camps that run at two outdoor pools - Ourland Park Outdoor Pool (off Islington south of Evans) and Amos Waites Park Outdoor Pool (near Lakeshore & Mimico), as well as dryland at Tom Riley Park. Finally, one online zoom yoga session per week is also included.

Swimmers must receive an invitation to join, as groups are pre-assigned.

All LSC swimmers with accounts in good standing are eligible for these camps. You must have registered in August 2020 or joined the club since that date to be eligible as an existing LSC member.

"LSC Fundamentals" swimmers from prior years are also eligible.

This program may be opened to non-LSC swimmers if space permits.

COVID Information Sessions

All swimmers participating in Series 1 and Series 2 camps must attend a mandatory COVID Protocol Information Session. We will offer two sessions: Sunday July 4th, 7:30 - 8:30 PM or Monday July 5th 7:30-8:30 PM. Swimmers must complete this orientation prior to being allowed in the water at the pools. This means for those swimming on Monday (Yellow, Orange, Purple) you must complete the session Sunday night. Ideally parents will also join the call for this orientation particularly for younger swimmers. Here is the zoom link to access the session:

Frequently Asked Questions

Important Links & Summer Registration
Q: What is the link to the program information page
A: https://www.teamunify.com/team/canlsc/page/programs/2021-summer-camps

Q: Where do I register?
A: Log in to our website at http://lakeshoreswimclub.com, and click on the appropriate camp on the home page under “upcoming events”.  You can also register here (but you have to be signed-in or the camps don’t appear): https://www.teamunify.com/team/canlsc/page/calendar#/team-events/upcoming

Q: My registration window is hanging and I can’t register.  What’s wrong?
A: Team Unify is reporting problems with the registration system on Safari. Please use Chrome or Firefox. Sorry…

Q: Do I need to rush to register?
A: Well, we haven’t invited more swimmers than we can accommodate, so from that standpoint, if you received an invitation for Series 1 you should be ok, but programming starts in 2 days!  We appreciate knowing what you have in mind for the summer.  

Q: My plans have changed since I submitted the survey. Can I update you?
A: We used the survey for our initial planing and working with the group sizes/placement.  However, it is not too late to participate or adjust your plans. If you could let us know the change, it will help us to plan the rest of the summer.   https://forms.gle/NR5MzXF1PJaUhQW18

Q: I opted out of swimming last summer and did not register for the 2020-2021 swim season, but I want to return. Can I?
A: Big picture, yes. Series 1: it depends. Space is tight some weeks. We are prioritizing swimmers who have been active during the pandemic first, but a few extra spots do remain.  Swimmers who opted out last season need to register with LSC first, which will include Swim Ontario and Swim Canada registration. This process will take a few days.  If you’re in this category, please contact [email protected] and also complete the survey https://forms.gle/NR5MzXF1PJaUhQW18. We will work through the “paperwork” with you.  We will definitely be able to accommodate you in Series 2 though and the fall 2021/22 season.

Q: Will you be running a program like Fundamentals for the summer?
A: Only if space permits. 

Q: Will you run Fundamentals in the fall?
A: We hope to and probably, but it will depend on pool availability.  If you’re interested in our Fundamentals program (for a younger sibling or for a friend), please join our Tryout and Registration Announcement mailing list under Programs > Tryouts on our website (https://lakeshoreswimclub.us8.list-manage.com/subscribe?u=38a76c9883b50433ccb2e964b&id=dc6e8b4064).

Q: Are you accepting new competitive swimmers this summer?
A: That depends on space, and is at the discretion of Head Coach Tristan. During the Series 1 camps we are prioritizing our returning swimmers. 

Payments
Q: How do I pay by e-transfer?
A: You can send an e-transfer to [email protected].  We are monitoring e-transfers every few hours during registration, and the amount of the transfer will be added to your account. You can then register and use your account credit to pay for the camp.  Hint: if you know you’ll be signing up for a few weeks you can pre-pay if you like.

Q: Can I pay by credit card?
A: Yes

Q: Team Unify says that I have an outstanding balance that will be paid when I register. Is that correct?
A: Yes. If you have questions about your account, you can review your account details in Team Unify. If you have any questions please email [email protected] 

Q: Is there a credit if a practice is cancelled by the permitting agency?
A: If the permitting agency provides us with a refund for the practice that is cancelled, the amount credited will be divided evenly among registrants. Note that permits are only a part of our costs.  There is no credit or refund for other costs in the event of a practice cancellation.

COVID Information Meetings
Q: When is the COVID protocol meeting?
A: Sunday July 4th, 7:30 - 8:30 PM or Monday July 5th 7:30-8:30 PM.  Zoom details are on the program information page  https://www.teamunify.com/team/canlsc/page/programs/2021-summer-camps. All swimmers must attend one session. 

Q: I can’t make the COVID information session because I’m out of town.  Can I organize a make-up?
A: Yes, a make-up can be arranged, but your swimmer will not be allowed in the water until the information session has been seen.  Please email [email protected] to make arrangements. 

Q: Do I need to do a COVID self-screening before coming to the pool?
A: Amos Waites: NO - it will be done by pool staff at the pool. Tom Riley Park & Ourland: YES, you must complete an online self-screening before coming to the workout, each time you come.  It’s on our website under the Programs menu (https://forms.gle/Swc4jDxRpHvkcGcp6).

Series 2
Q: When are Series 2 programs going to be announced?
A: These are still being planned. We will complete planning after running Series 1 for a while, so approximately July 11th, but it will be tentative until we have formal approvals in place.  We’ll keep you posted.  We anticipate that a move to step 3 will bring adjustments in the pools available to us including some indoor pools. This will be depend on the guidance provided by public health and Swim Ontario at that time.  If however, we don't move to step 3 and remain at step 2, the programming will be very similar to what is planned in the next 3 weeks. 

Q: Do you have any idea which times will be allocated to groups yet?
A: Programs will not be released until they are ready, however, we can tell you that in addition to the current outdoor pools, we have Keele weekdays 11-3 and TPASC MWF from 1-3.


Fall Registration
Q: When will you launch Fall Registration?
A: We will open Fall registration in the next week or so.  Commitment dates will be announced soon.  

Q: How will registration work?
A: You will pay a non-refundable membership fee of $500 at the time of registration, and a monthly program fee will be payable at the start of each month.

Q: What group am I in?
A: Group assignments have not been made yet. We intend to run a full program this fall (if possible), with 5 or 6 groups of competitive swimming and a Fundamentals program.

Q: When will I know my swim schedule for the Fall?
A: We are all keen to have this however it depends entirely on what happens with the province and the pandemic as you can appreciate. Pools have provided us assurance on permits, but these won't be released until they know they will be open in the fall. We will issue a plan this summer making assumptions of what has been verbally committed to us, but we appreciate the clubs ongoing flexibility and understanding. 

Secondly, most of our swimmers haven’t been in the water in nearly a year, so group assignments will most likely be “fluid” in the fall. The coaches together with Head Coach Tristan Vowles will be doing this planning together. 

That being said, we’re parents of busy kids too and we know you need to have something on your calendar. We’re working on tentative plans and will update you in a couple of weeks.
