The Return of Swim Programming: October 2022

Good news, swim people: we are getting things lined up for a tentative start date of October 11th for the fall session! We are looking to run just the Juniors and Seniors programs for this fall session, with the Kids program set to return in January. 

The requirement for your child to qualify for the Juniors program is for them to be able to swim 25m (one length of the pool) without stopping, using any stroke (not doggy paddle). 

Our club registrar is working to get things in place for registrations to open soon. Look out for an update within the next days!

Thank you for your patience as we get this club back in order after the interruption of the pandemic.

Fall 2021 session now open for registration!

The Deep River CANDU Swim Club Registration is now open for both Juniors and Seniors. You can access the registration at this link

The Fall session goes from Sept 14- Dec 17 2021

 The schedule for swimming for Juniors is Tuesdays and Thursdays, 5 – 6 pm. ($400, 6 spots available, 2 hours per week total)

The schedule for swimming for Seniors (6 hours per week) is Tuesdays and Thursdays, 5 – 7 pm, and Wednesdays and Fridays, 7:30 – 8:30 pm ($1,000, 12 spots available, 6 hours per week total).

We also offer a reduced schedule for Seniors (2 hours per week) on Wednesdays and Fridays from 7:30 – 8:30 pm ($400, 6 spots available, 2 hours per week total).


The cost includes the mandatory swim Canada insurance fee.


Due to COVID protocols and requirements, we will not be offering a Candu Kids program or a Masters (adults) program at this time.


Note, for Juniors the requirement is that the swimmer can perform front crawl and is capable of swimming a full lap (25m) confidently with no assistance, as we will not have instructors assisting in the pool. Usually these swimmers are around 8 years old and up.


For Seniors, since it’s a lot more swimming (at least 2 km per session), they must understand the basics of all of the strokes, and are usually 10 years old and up.


The ages provided are a guideline rather than a hard rule – suitability for the various programs is determined by swimming ability and maturity on a case-by-case basis.
