On behalf of the Olympian Swim Club’s Board of Director’s, welcome to the 2019 - 2020 swim Season!  Looking forward to this season the club will build on our success in the pool from the past season, which saw OSC swimmers compete and medal at Provincial, National and at Junior World Championships events.  Many of these swimmers, including my own, twelve years ago, began in what is now our club’s Mini-O’s program, which is the foundation of our club’s continued success.  

OSC is proud to welcome as our Head Coaches Lesley Serediak, and Colleen Marchese.  The pedigree of many of Edmonton’s top swimmers over the past 20 years traces through Coach Lesley who will be responsible for the OSC technical Program and will be coaching the High Performance Group.  Coach Colleen who will be responsible for administration and logistics of the OSC’s competitive program while coach the Performance Blue Group. Together Lesley and Colleen have assembled an impressive coaching staff and bring to the club a combined 50 years of coaching and administrative excellence. 

I am excited to announce that in 2019 through 2021 that OSC will be partnering with Vivos Swimwear who will be the official apparel supplier to OSC and the title sponsor of both the JP Fiset Invitational and the OSC 10 and Under Series.  The energy and spirit that has been a hallmark of OSC for over 40 years will be reflected in the new look of our clubs apparel and the feel of our meets. 

In addition to our club meets, OSC will be hosting both Alberta Festival North, and Alberta Spring Championships in 2020.  Historically OSC has distinguished itself provincially and nationally for our ability to host first class championship meets from our hospitality room to the deck. This tradition will continue through the 2019 - 2020 season built on our club’s spirit of work ethic, cooperation and volunteerism.

To both our returning swimmers and families welcome back.  To our new swimmers and families, welcome.  Thank-you all for choosing the Olympian Swim Club.  Please take the opportunity to introduce yourselves to myself or any member of the board and feel free to contact us with any suggestions or concerns.

Let’s go O.
