2021 Fall and 2022 Winter Maintenance - Please Read ALL Information Carefully!

Fall Maintenance registration for existing members will open on Wednesday August 25, 2021 at 8am and for new members, space permitting, on Friday, September 3, 2021 at 8am. 

 

Winter Maintenance registration dates TBD (likely November 2021).

 ***FOR REGISTRATION CLICK HERE***

** Please remember that you may not swim more than 2 hours of coached time per week in order to maintain your "S" summer status (click here for more information) BUT....GOOD NEWS... Waterpolo is counted separately and is not part of the 2 hours so you can sign up for 2 groups per fall and winter maintenance sessions as well as waterpolo.

PLEASE NOTE: Dates are listed for the fall only at this time.  Pool allocation will likely be the same for winter 2022 (January to April) but waiting for confirmation from city.

  • Summer Swim Club, including fall and winter maintenance programing, is not a lessons program but a competitive swim club.
  • Swimmers entering the club need to be able to swim 15m independently in a recognizable stroke.
  • We may need to ask swimmers to withdraw if they are not able to swim 15m and we reserve the right to move swimmers to a different group based on skill level. 
  • We do not swim on Statutory Holidays  or during Spring Break but practices are on for any school Pro-D days.
  • All practices include a 15 min dryland activation prior to 1 hour in-water practice.
  • Cost is $10 per practice and thus, cost may be different between groups depending on stats and spring break fall on that day.
  • Please DO NOT come to practice if you are feeling unwell or have any cold/flu symptoms.
  • If you have your own swim equipment please bring to practice
  • If you miss a practice, we cannot guarantee that we accomodate a make-up practice.
