Swordfish Programs

Swordfish competitive program is geared for swimmers aged 6-18yrs looking for a competitive swimming experience.  Swimmers are assessed and assigned training groups based on skill level.

Practice - practice length and duration will vary depending on the training group they are assigned to.  Our introductory groups typically practice 2 to 4 times a week, for 45 mins to 1.5hrs depending upon training group. Our more experienced swimmers are training 5 days a week. Our training groups are divided out into different groups; Gold, Bronze, Orange, Red, Green & Black.

 Swim Meets - as a competitive club, the expectation is that swimmers will participate in as many swim meets throughout the season as possible, with a focus being on the Swordfish meet, Regional and Provincials.  We strive to continually improve our swimming throughout the season in preparation of the Regional and Provincial Finals.  The more meets a swimmer can attend, the more opportunities there are for the swimmer to fine tune their abilities and techniques.  It also allows the coaches to evaluate swimmers under racing conditions to note what the swimmers need to focus on during training and practice.

 Swimmer requirements:

  • For swimmers looking for a competitive environment, with some or no experience in competitive swimming
  • Must be able to swim a minimum of 25M Freestyle (front crawl) non-stop.
  • Must be coachable, able to follow instruction
  • Based on coaches' discretion

 We do NOT provide swim lessons.  We train as a competitive club and as such, our swimmers are expected to train, compete, and participate in the swim meets throughout the season.

**Placement will be based upon the end of season assessment and upon evaluation during the first 2 weeks of the current season.  Meeting outlined eligibility standards and following the pool rules are essential for the safety of the swimmer as well as Swordfish teammates.  New swimmers will be assessed with the returning swimmers.
