Swimmers have fun during a recent learn to swim program at Echo Pool.

Swimmers in the FUNdamental group recently completed the second session of the learn to swim program at Echo 67 Pool.

To cap off two months of twice a week swimming, the club held a fun mini-meet followed with pizza. Many of the young swimmers in this session reached important skill milestones allowing them to move on to the next level: the intermediate group, coached by Leanne Saunders.

In the FUNdamental program, swimmers are taught the four basic strokes, endurance and diving. Becoming a stronger swimmer brings a higher level of safety in the water in addition to overall confidence.

The next session of this program begins April 4 (with a free trial April 4 and 6 from 3:45–4:30 p.m.).

In addition to the novice program, the Tsunami Swim Club also offers a fitness program and a competitive program.  All swimmers receive the same level of coaching no matter what program they are registered in.

The fitness program is ideal for those older swimmers who want to becoming stronger and healthier swimmers, or for those preparing to take their Bronze Cross/Medallion.

Registrations are accepted throughout the year, there are no tryouts, all levels are welcome. For more information please call Deidre at 250-723-5435.
