About ROCS


ROC Swimming is a privately owned swimming club that operates out of Carleton University in Ottawa, Ontario. We provide programs for swimmers of all ages. We believe in the potential of all athletes and promote swimming as a long-term development and life long skill. ROC Swimming supports swimmers to train to become highly competitive at the provincial and national level as well as find lifelong enjoyment through fun, fitness, and friendship. We are proud of our commitment to excellence and welcome you to try our exciting program. We are also pleased to offer an adult swimming program geared towards athletes training towards multi-sport events such as triathlon and pentathlon.
