Every new swimmer must go through an assessment to determine:
- Is the swimmer ready for the program?
- What level does the swimmer match?
- Is there room in the level?
If your swimmer is between the ages of 5 to 9 years old and has completed Ultra Level 4 or Swim for Life 4, attend one of our assessments. Assessments are held at the Etobicoke Olympium in the patio pool and run on a first-come first-serve basis.
An assessment typically lasts 10 minutes. No registration is required to attend an assessment. Assessments are held three times per year before each new session.
The program runs in three 12-week sessions throughout the school year:
Fall - Sept. 17 to Dec. 10, 2018
Winter - Jan. 7 to Apr.7, 2019
Spring - Apr. 8 to June 30, 2019
