Just a few notes about the Bronze programming for the remainder of the season…

Training Schedule
The chart above aims to give everyone a head’s up before the sessions start so you can see when/where we can foresee changes to the regular schedule. We may still have to deal with City of Edmonton facility issues, but those are generally few and far between. “Omit Date” means there will be no training on that date; “Move Date” means that training for your pool is moved to the noted pool; “Make-up” means a practice was added on the given date to balance the number of practices between pools.

Registering for Bronze
Our website is designed in the USA for 1,000’s of swim clubs… And as such, it has some bugs when it comes to doing anything out of the box (like 3x3-month Bronze sessions). Here is what you need to know:
If you haven’t done so already, it is easiest to extend your sign-up to a subsequent session by emailing Brea or the office directly at
Colleen will fix anything that happens in error when registering on our website
You will only pay a registration fee and membership deposit once; anything else is a website error and will be corrected.

Dropping the Fee for Session Three
It has a lovely rhyme to it. In short, we have recalculated the fees for Session 3 based on the number of workouts impacted by holidays and PD days and a slightly shorter session overall than we had planned. Rather than extending the swimming session after the school year is done, we have decided to finish the same week as school and reduce the Session 3 cost from $545 to $475.
