PRACTICE SCHEDULES ARE AVAILABLE ON THE GROUP CALENDAR TAB BY GROUP.
The Ogopogo summer practice schedule runs Monday through Friday, and varies between morning and evening practices. The time at which a swimmer will practice is determined by their SKILL level (not by age).
When competing at meets, swimmers will compete in their age division (visit BCSSA age locator on our links tab to determine what "division" your swimmer will be in).
Please note there are no practices held on Provincial/Statutory Holidays during the season.
In the month of April, Ogopogo coaches will assess the swimmers ability and place them in the appropriate practice groups (levels 1-8).
Coaches will go over expectations and plans more extensively with their swimmers each week. The Ogopogo Summer Swim Club attempts to provide as much flexibility and opportunity as possible - for all groups. Please keep in mind that we must work within the scheduled lane allocation at H2O and Parkinson Rec Center, and cannot exceed lane capacity and coach:swimmer ratios.
Your practice times will be assigned by the Registrar. We will do our best to accommodate preferred times; however, swimmers MUST ONLY attend the practices they are assigned to due to strict lane space restrictions.
Please do not ask the coaches about schedule changes. Their primary focus is to coach your swimmer!
***All requests for schedule changes must be done by email and ONLY through the Registrar at: firstname.lastname@example.org ***.
