Welcome to the Academy 2023-2024 Season!

My name is Kirsty, and I am pleased to welcome you to the Academy!

What we're all about: Toronto Swim Club Academy is designed to introduce the fundamental skills of competitive swimming in a fun and engaging environment. The program targets swimmers aged 10 & under and is divided into three levels: Bronze, Silver, and Gold. Progression through the Academy levels is based on meeting certain criteria: age, skill achievement, commitment, and training habits. A high level of attendance is expected of all swimmers to ensure proper skill development. Time spent in each Academy level and selection into the competitive stream varies based on the swimmer’s rate of development.

New Swimmer Tryouts: We have already completed our mid-season tryouts. Our next tryouts will be at the end of June 2024 for our 2024-2025 Season. Please fill in a New Swimmer Tryout Form and we will add you to the email list for future updates.
