Ready to join ROW?

Thank you very much for your interest. If you have not swum competitively before, you will require an assessment or try-out, in order for the coaches to advise you on your optimal group placement.

ROW is offering a try-out / assessment session for new swimmers wanting to join the club:

Friday, October 16, 2020, from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m.

Location: Breithaupt Centre Pool

ROW Swim Club acknowledges the many ways in which people have been affected by COVID-19.  To ensure everyone has the opportunity to join, try-out fees are waived for the 2020-21 season.


Please note that we are currently offering registration in several programs. For group-specific information, please contact the respective coach.

The steps below describe the try-out process, as mandated by Swim Ontario.
