Join the Team

Welcome to the Whitby Swimming and the exciting world of swimming!  

Whitby Swimming is a non-profit organization run by a board of directors and committees comprised of parent volunteers. 

Should you wish to volunteer for any committee or board position or if you have questions, suggestions for us to answer and consider, please contact contact 

The club runs both a Pre-competitive (Swim Skills) program as well as a Competitive (youth, age group, senior) program. 

Competitive registration will open August 6 and pre-competitive registration will open August 27.

Assessment Days/Tryouts

offer programs for swimmers age 6 and up.  The basic requirement to join the pre-competitive program is Red Cross level 5/6.  This generally means a swimmer can swim one length of the pool (25m) on their front and one length on their back.

All new swimmers need to be assessed before joining the club (pre-competitive or competitive program).  Assessments for new competitive (or pre-competitive) swimmers  will be held August 19 and 26 at 5pm.  Please choose the day that suits you best.  There is no need to attend both days.  August assessments will take place at the Rotary Outdoor Pool in Oshawa (northwest corner of Center and Gibb). Assessments are free and last about 10 minutes.

Swimmers should bring a bathing suit, towel and goggles.  They should also bring a swim cap or have their hair tied back if it is long enough to get in their eyes. There are changing facilities at the Rotary Pool.

If you would like to add you swimmer's name to the list for an August assessment  or have any questions please contact the club registrar (Suzi Santaguida) at

Swimmers with previous competitive swimming experience please contact the club registrar (Suzi Santaguida) at
