Term 3 - Swimming

Marysia Parry

Collingwood’s Junior Swim Team is open to all boys and girls in the school who are interested in participating and have some swimming experience (these are not swim lessons). Swimmers can start as early as Grade 3 or join in a later year. While participation is high (over 70 boys and girls are expected this year!), the quality of swimmers is equally as high. Many of our swimmers swim for their local club teams. We encourage our kids to participate especially with year-round clubs to further develop their skills in the sport.

Girls and Boys swimming with "year-round" clubs more than two times week may be exempted from practices. Grades 3 and 4 swim on Monday mornings and Grades 5 to 7 swim on Wednesday mornings. All practices take place at the West Vancouver Rec Centre from 7:00am to 8:00am.

The team competes in monthly meets during the season, which runs through Term 2. Most meets are open to all swimmers who have attended practices consistently. The ISEA Championships require a team to be selected.
