ROW Swim Club offers a variety of programs for swimmers of all abilities. Swimmers must be comfortable in the water independently. Look here for a description of programs and the associated schedules and fees.

The first step to joining ROW is to have your swimmer's skills assessed. Try-outs are normally held in September. You can also arrange an try-out at other times by sending an email to ac.gnimmiwswor|tnemssessA#ac.gnimmiwswor|tnemssessA to set up an appointment. Please include in the email your swimmer's name and age plus parents' name and phone number.

Once you have arranged to bring your swimmer to a try-out, please download and fill out the top portion of the assessment form and take it with you to the try-out to hand to the coach. The coach will assess your swimmer's level and determine the best group for your swimmer. The bottom portion of the form must be included with your cheque payment to the ROW office prior to the start of your program.

TOP is our initial competitive program typically suited for swimmers aged 8 and under, but again is dependant on swim ability. The TOP program runs September to the end of May, but new swimmers can join anytime based on availability. Swimmers in this program swim three times a week, one hour each time. This program works on stroke technique and endurance. Swimmers in this program also participate in “ROW Series Meets”. These meets are informal fun meets designed to introduce swimmers to the sport of competitive swimming. The focus of these meets are “best times” and swimmers are awarded with ribbons. Swimmers in this level will also have the opportunity to compete in local swim meets.

Our BRONZE 2 (9-10), SILVER 2(11-12), and GOLD 2(13-14) programs are for swimmers still developing their skills. From here, swimmers can move on to ROW's other programe levels as they progress in age, maturity and skill.

Our BRONZE 1 (9-10), SILVER 1(11-12), GOLD 1(13-14) and SENIOR 1/2 (14+) programs are for more seasoned swimmers, ready to begin competitive swimming. Swimmers in these groups participate in swim meets at regional, provincial, and national level as they progress in age, maturity and skill.

SENIOR 3 is a program designed for high school students who want to start or continue their swim training. This is also a perfect fit for a youth seeking a fitness program while gaining valuable skills. This is a non-competitive program; however, for those who wish to formally compete, there is a competition option.
