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.

REGISTRATION IS NOW OPEN!

The Deep River Candu Swim Club is very happy to announce a *NEW* Swim Session will be offered for Junior and Senior Swimmers April 6-May 28th.

Juniors- 2hrs/week: Tuesdays and Thursdays 5pm to 6 pm,  $280
Seniors- 6 hrs/week: Tuesdays and Thursdays from 5 pm to 7pm and Wednesdays and Fridays from 7:30 to 8:30 pm, $550 
Seniors- 2hrs/week: Wednesdays and Fridays from 7:30 to 8:30 pm, $280

Registration link :https://cui.active.com/sports-reg/login?a=cf07e49f-4543-4afe-aa6a-bd15cdf0300c 

In order to be able to afford pool time with a reduced swimmer count, our registration fees are based on meeting a certain minimum threshold of registrants for each program. If we are not able to meet those minimum numbers, we will be forced to cancel the session and try again next session. For that reason, anyone who intends to register for this session may do so without paying up front. Once we reach the minimum threshold and are certain that the session will happen, we will charge you for the registration. The registration fee this year includes the mandatory fee from Swim Ontario for insurance coverage for the year.

Registrations will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis. We have a hard cap for how many swimmers we are allowed to fit in the pool at once, so the earlier you register, the better your chances of getting to swim.
There will be no partial registrations. Due to the max swimmer count, we will only be accepting registrations for the full program offering for each program. Attendance at every session will not be mandatory, but the full fee will be required.
Registrants will be required to attend a video call with the Candus club president to go over the COVID swimming rules. Participation will be mandatory.

We look forward to seeing our swimmers in the pool again!
