Your Coach is your #1 resource. If you have any questions, always clarify with your coach. Your coach may make changes to this schedule and communicate those with you directly based on changes at your specific pool. Trust your coach to get you the best information about your next scheduled practice

The Development Start-Up calendar is posted on our website.
Please go to the Practice Schedule page to see the calendar, or to view our pool schedules.

    The deadline is January 13th!    

The online order will be available until January 13, 2019.
There are a few parkas in the office if swimmers want to try them for sizing.
All orders will be sent directly to your mailing address in February.

How to buy?
Follow our steps in here to get your Keyano official products!


From time to time we accumulate enough lost or left items that it becomes time for a fire sale... that sale is coming on Wednesday, January 8th!

Apparel and Equipment Sale:
All current stock will be for sale, and anything out of stock can be ordered for you. Get your swimmers everything that they need for their practices and ask the office for advice on sizing, brand and equipment purchase. 

Items for sale include: Fins, Paddles, Kickboards, Goggles, Training Suits (limited sizes; discount prices); snorkels, pull buoys... Literally anything we ask you to use in training is available to buy from the office at the cheapest price available in Edmonton. 

Used Equipment Sale:
All used equipment that has been donated or unclaimed for at least 4 months will be for sale, first come first serve. Items will be pre-matched and on display for members to try on. Anything on the used table will be sold for $5 or less. We hope a few families will be able to take advantage.

Once you buy your items, please remember to put your name on them, decorate them, and make them unique.

Just drop by the office next Wednesday if you have any equipment needs!
