Thank you for your interest in the Whitehorse Glacier Bears. 

All prospective youth swimmers (ages 5 & up) must complete a pool evaluation with one of our Glacier Bear coaches before registration for our 2021-2022 swim season can take place.  Depending on your child’s swimming ability, our coaches may either recommend a specific squad within the Club OR that your child continues to develop their skills through City swim lessons.

=>Please Email the club [email protected] your interest to join our 2021-2022 swim season.

Review our website homepage for information regarding volunteer requirements, fees, schedules, squad criteria, & policies for the swim season. 


The Whitehorse Glacier Bears Swim Club is a strong competitive swimming club with a good age group foundation.

Our mission: To provide the resources for swimmers to develop and excel in the sport of competitive swimming, to his/her/they potential.

The season extends from September to June. Learning new skills, training hard, and having fun while recognizing the uniqueness of each swimmer are the cornerstones of our program. We develop the four competitive strokes, dive starts, turns, and pace. Practices are in a fun and positive environment. 

Our swim club accepts new members, after undergoing a pool evaluation, in September and January. (depending on space and availability in our swim groups)

All of our coaches, as members of the Canadian Swimming Coaches & Teachers Association, have access to the most comprehensive training and certification program for youth coaches of any sport in Canada. They provide assurances that the time children spend in swimming will be quality time.

We are a non-profit club, run by its elected Board of Directors which meets each month.
