The Vikings accept swimmers from age 5 to 18 at many levels of skill and ability. Swimmers who wish to join us for the summer season who are not currently Vikings members are required to complete a swimming assessment prior to registration.
The next assessments, for Summer 2019, will occur in April 2019 (see previous section for dates). We will not be conducting any assessments before that time and registration for Winter Maintenance is now CLOSED to new swimmers.
On arriving at the pool for their assessment, new swimmers and their parents should meet in the pool waiting area, where they will sign-in for the assessment with a Vikings parent volunteer. Please make sure to bring a swimsuit, goggles, swimcap (if desired) and towel.
For the assessment, each swimmer will be asked to swim 25 metres of freestyle and 25 metres of backstroke, both unassisted. After their assessment is over, new swimmers accepted into the Vikings may register for the summer season online. Please note that acceptance of any swimmer is at the discretion of the Head Coach and may be limited due to space restrictions in a particular group.
See below under Registration Forms for the registration link for the New Swimmer Assessment.
