Fundamentals & Summer Camp

Welcome to Lakeshore Swim Club's Fundamentals & Development Summer Camp home. These programs are offered outside our competitive program.

Each program is described below in detail, along with session times and registration fees.


Registration is only available online. Returning swimmers are given exclusive access to re-register, followed by qualified siblings of members, and then qualified new members may register afterward if space permits. Note that some programs require swimmers to attend one of our tryouts and to be invited to register. Please review the program information below for details like this before proceeding to register. 

Wait Lists

LSC does not maintain wait lists for its programs between one session and the next. However, if a program becomes full, some programs allow swimmers to join a wait list for that particular session. In the event that a participant has to leave the program, LSC may admit a member from the wait list to fill the vacancy. If you would like to register for a program that is full, you may want to click on the "Wait List" button (which replaces the "Register" button) to join that program's wait list. At the end of the session, the wait list is discarded.

No Refunds

Please note that LSC does not offer full or partial refunds for any of its non-competitive programs for any reason. Be sure to check your schedules before registering!

Program Cancellation Policy

In the event of insufficient demand for programs, Lakeshore Swim Club reserves the right to cancel a program prior to the commencement of classes. Registered members will be fully reimbursed for their fee in such circumstances.


The Fundamentals program at Lakeshore Swim Club is a developmental swim program for swimmers age 7 and up who have successfully completed Toronto Parks, Forestry & Recreation's Ultra Swim 5 (minimum, or equivalent), and have tried out and been invited to join this group. This program introduces swimmers to competitive swimming and emphasizes competitive swimming technique for front crawl, back crawl, breaststroke and butterfly.

Our coaches have experience in the development and competitive swim environments and are registered with Swim Ontario.

Swimmers MUST attend a tryout to determine their eligibility for the program. Registrants who do not try out will be removed from the program and refunded.

Lakeshore Swim Club Fundamentals is offered as both a one day per week option and a two day per week option. One is not a prerequisite for the other, and qualified swimmers can sign up for either program, space permitting.

The next step from this program, which would be a year or two down the road for most swimmers, would be entering Lakeshore Swim Club's competitive stream in the Intro program, which includes regular swim meets and 3 or more practices per week.

The Fundamentals program is not part of Lakeshore Swim Club's formal competitive program. Participants in this program are not members of Lakeshore Swim Club, and are not subject to the volunteer requirement listed in the Parent Info section of our website.
