Bring your goggles and towel.  The Team follows a strict COVID-19 safety guidelines and we expect everyone to follow these guidelines in order to swim.  As things change, we may need to change groups and schedules to meet capacity limits if they are imposed.   MASKS are required while in the building until further notice.  

Space may be limited, so please register promptly if you would like to swim.  Our current OLSA Swimmers will have a week priority for sign up. 

Your swimmer is expected to follow a postive code of conduct during all swimming program events and activities.  It will be at the discretion of the coaching staff to discipline as needed with notice to parent/guardian for repeat offenders.  Swimmers may become ineligible to swim if poor behaviour persists with no refund.  We expect swimmers to attend practice, meets and conference (if held) along with other team activities.   We expect parents/guardians to follow the same positive code of conduct.
