About this event

Our Outdoor Summer program is back!

Please read below for notes & expectations surrounding Covid-19 protocol before signing up.

Emily will be our coach for the summer!


i) The pool will be split into 3 double lanes, each lane allows 4 swimmers while keeping 2m apart. The coach will explain how the lane organization will be implemented in detail at the start of practice. This is done to help keep distance among swimmers during practice.

ii) Swimmers are to bring their own equipment, there is to be no sharing and no borrowing from the facility

iii) Swimmers may only come to the practice they signed up for, no swapping with another swimmer

iv) If there is a single confirmed case of COVD-19 from a participating member of OSM, the program will be shut down for a minimum of 2 weeks, based on Ottawa Public Health guidelines. Members will be contacted immediately if this occurs.

v) Physical distancing is mandatory between fellow swimmers and coaches at all times

What If I arrive earlier than 5 minutes before? Swimmers must form a line outside the gate entrance and keep 2m apart

Swimmers must wait until all members from earlier session have left the premises and the coach gives the ok to enter the premises iii) Upon entering the pool deck, swimmers MUST use hand sanitizer, check in with the coach to confirm attendance and sign health and safety waiver iv) Swimmers are to proceed straight to the DEEP END to drop off bags in marked off area) After dropping bags off, swimmers must walk to the SHALLOW END and wait in a line, 2m apart, until the pool has cleared completely and Emily gives a verbal signal that it’s safe for swimmers to enter the pool
