About the Etobicoke Swim Club
The Etobicoke Swim Club has a long and rich history of service to the Etobicoke community. Since 1954 we have been training children and young adults in the sport of competitive swimming with truly outstanding results.
The Etobicoke Swim Club has produced many National, International and Olympic swimmers and has been Provincial and National Champion many times over. Today we have over 270 swimmers competing for Etobicoke, from the novice level all the way to National Team members. Our club motto is "Committed to Excellence" and our swimmers, coaches and parents work hard on a daily basis to continue this tradition of excellence. We are extremely proud of our swimmers and their successes; however, as parents, we are equally proud of the outstanding citizens that our children have become for the community.
Over the years a very special relationship has developed between our organization, the City of Etobicoke, and the Etobicoke Olympium. We feel that our young athletes are tremendous ambassadors for Etobicoke as they travel around the Toronto area, the province of Ontario, the rest of Canada and even the world, to take part in swim meets. We also host thousands of swimmers and their families each year as they take part in competitions that are held at the Etobicoke Olympium.
