SCAR Swim Academy 2020-2021 Season   

In addition to our home pool at the Toronto Pan Am Sports Centre, the Scarborough Swim Club also rents pool run by the City of Toronto and TDSB to offer our programs across East Toronto.  We have received news that the TDSB will not be allowing any pool rentals until at least March 31, 2021, at which time they will reassess their situation.  At this time, they are focusing on the health and safety of students returning to school before they allow outside organizations into the schools.

While we can all understand the reasons for this decision in these unprecedented times, due to lack of pool space, SCAR will unfortunately not be able to run our Scarborough Swim Academy program for the 2020-2021 season.  It is our sincere hope that we will be able to resume our program in the summer/fall of 2021.

If you are interested in joining the Scarborough Swim Club for 2020-2021, please check back to this page as we will publish information once it is available.
