Reminder: OSM Outdoor swimming starts on Monday!

Hello OSM swimmers!
A reminder that the outdoor summer session begins Monday. You are invited to come out to any practice during the week that suits. Full schedule begins Monday:

  • 6-7am
  • 7-8am
  • 8-9am


  • 6-7am
  • 7-8am



  • 7:30-8:30pm

Bring any/all equipment that you own – and a warm towel (or two). The pool is heated and the showers are working, but this spring has been exceptionally cool! We do not have access to the indoor pool, so be sure to bring all your equipment outside; there are a few change rooms on deck.The only event where practices will be cancelled is in the event of a lightning storm (and the pool has to be cleared for 30 minutes if there is thunder). A reminder that there are NO practices is Monday, July 1st. The last day of the summer session is Friday, August 23.
We’re in for another great summer in the pool. Andrea and I are certainly excited to begin – thanks for coming out to join us!
Let me know if you have any questions!



Ottawa Swim Masters (OSM) 

JCC Pool re-opens Thursday, June 13

Hello OSM summer swimmers,
Thankfully the JCC indoor pool is open for business tomorrow morning, which means we get ONE session in tomorrow evening 8:30-9:30pm. For those of you who signed up for Thursday night, I’ll see you there. If you’d like to join us, send me a separate note – there’s room for 5 more.
The outdoor pool is open for business – we will be the first crew in the water on Monday morning. See you there!

JCC indoor pool remains closed

Hello OSM Summer swimmers –

The JCC pool remains closed – hopefully by the end of the week we’ll be able to jump in. Therefore, our technique workouts scheduled this week are indefinitely postponed. I am very sorry this has happened.

I haven’t heard anything that is delaying the outdoor pool opening (no news is good news!) We are still aiming to start the outdoor summer program on Monday.

Stay tuned and I will update you as soon as I hear!

Marie and Andrea
