Programs

Fundamentals

The fundamentals program is ideal for younger swimmers (age 7+) that are interested in trying competitive swimming. Swimmers should be capable of confidently swimming one lap of the pool using one or several of the basic swim strokes (front crawl, back stroke, breast stroke, or butterfly). The focus of this program is on the fundamentals phase of Swim Canada’s Long Term Swimmer Development (LTSD) model for all four strokes, starts and turns.

Junior Competitive

The junior competitive program is the ideal next step for swimmers from the Fundamentals program or for older swimmers (age 9+) that have good fundamentals in at least 3 strokes. This program continues to build on swimmer fundamentals and introduces swimmers to the Learn-to-Train phase of Swim Canada’s Long Term Swimmer Development (LTSD) model. Team participation and good sportsmanship are developed.

Senior Competitive

The senior competitive program introduces swimmers to the Train-to-Train and the Train-to-Compete phases of the Swim Canada Long Term Swimmer Development (LTSD) model. While becoming more efficient in the water, there is more endurance focus and swimmers in this group are required to swim four or five practices (8+ hours) per week. Setting goals and personal best times comes into focus.

The competitive group participates in up to 8 sanctioned swim meets during the season, this includes both local and out-of-town swim meets.
