Hello OSM swimmers,

Thank you for your patience – there have been several changes over the past few weeks!  Our session dates have been pushed back a week to line up with camp opening in the outdoor pool. It looks like the week of July 13th. Registration will be opening as soon as next week – here is a list of what to expect.

·  Very limited number of spots (this can be reviewed only as the restrictions ease). We are following City and Provincial restriction guidelines

·  Sign-ups for sessions only (no drop-in as years previous). Registration will be thru Eventbrite for specific time and day

·    4 swimmers per double lane – there will be 3 (double) lanes total in the pool. Swimmers will have to maintain 2m social distance while swimming and at the walls

·  Signed waivers on deck

·  Ensuring the health of everyone with specific entry and exit protocols that will be strictly enforced

·  Change rooms are not available: swimmers are to arrive and depart in their suits or do a deck change

·  Swimmers must bring their own equipment (kick boards, pull buoys, fins, hand paddles)

·  No refunds will be issued in the event of session cancellation 

· If you are experiencing any flu-like symptoms and/or have a fever, you must stay home from practice.

The sessions to choose from are (Note: sessions will begin at 5:45am to ensure final practice concludes before camp kids arrive at 9am). We welcome Emily A back as the primary coach on deck this summer!
