RECREATION SQUADS

  • Recreation squads will not be offered for the 2020-2021 season.

COMPETITIVE SQUADS 

For the 2020-2021 season competitive squads are going to look a little different. For all squads we will only be practicing 3 days a week. Practice times and program participants will be reduced in length and numbers to better allow for social distancing. The season will be broken into 2 sessions, the first session will commence in October and run to December, the second session will start in January and run till March. This will allow us to reach more swimmers as our participant numbers will be reduced. Competitions will not be running this season, however there is the potential to run a time trial at our home pool. Times from the time trial would then be uploaded to the lifesaving website and be compared to other teams across the province. During practice times the pool will be closed to the public and only those registered in an Orca Squad will be allowed access to the pool area.
