Description

Our Outdoor Summer program is back! With access to a beautiful 25-metre outdoor pool located in West-Ottawa, we offer a program for all levels. Join eager and like-minded swimmers and enjoy the sun, stroke improvements and workouts.

STARTING DATE IN THE OUTDOOR POOL MID-JUNE (DATE TO BE ANNOUNCED - WEATHER DEPENDENT). WE WILL HOST A SKILLS N DRILLS WEEK AT THE INDOOR POOL THE WEEK OF JUNE 10th. REGISTRANTS WILL BE NOTIFIED OF UPDATES VIA EMAIL.


SPOTS ARE LIMITED!

This program is for you if:

1) You can swim 1800 metres in an hour (fast lane will do 2800-3000 metres). A set of 5 x 100m front crawl repeat times will be approximately 1:40, 1:50, 2:00-2:30 in one of the lanes.

2) You are eager to develop your swim technique, not only in just freestyle, but all four strokes (yes, including some butterfly)! Expect 30% of the practice to be choice strokes, 60% freestyle.

3) You are looking for a fun, family-endorsed outdoor swim program

To Bring
* Swim wear, goggles, towel to wrap yourself in as it may be cool
* Sandals optional as your feet will pick up sand to/from the outdoor pool
* Swim fins (we will bring a pair if you indicated you need to purchase for $35) particularly the novice swimmers so we can work on your technique

The Pool
* 25m, six-lane outdoor chlorinated pool
* Changeroom stalls available in shallow end
* Shallow end is 32 inches so if you do flip turns, make sure you do compact ones. Test it out first!
* Porta potties located in the small grassy area by parking lot in front of the pool
* Backstroke flags will be set up at the standard 5m from pool ends
* Rope lanes are not wave proof so expect some 'chop' when you swim...just like open-water :P
* Two warm showers are located by the outdoor change stalls


Head coach: Marie Anzai


Other Stuff You Should Know About
