OSM Summer swimming

OSM is currently experiencing a glitch in our on-line registration system. It will most likely be down until the end of the week. If you would like to register in the meantime, please contact me directly. My apologies for the inconvenience.

If you have registered successfully, I have sent you an email outlining the start date of the program. I have also invited summer registrants to indoor practices until we are able to swim outside. Please check your emails about summer swimming  from

Thank you, swimmers!

This week concludes our indoor 2019 program. Our last practice at the JCC is Thursday, MAY 30 and the ONLY practice on the weekend is Sunday June 2 at Carlton University.  A very sincere thank you for another fabulous season.
