Downtown Swim Club welcomes new and returning swimmers year-round.
Each swim season runs from September to August of the next calendar year. If you join mid-season, your DSC membership is pro-rated. Your membership starts the day you join and expires August 31, when all memberships expire and need to be renewed.
Being a member entitles you to all our practice offerings during your membership (members do not register or pay for individual practices). Membership also covers the cost of the pool, therefore you do not need to pay for pool admission.
Swimmers should be able to swim 100m of freestyle continuously with proper form. This is for the safety of yourself and fellow swimmers, as well as to ensure swimmers can follow the workouts provided by our coaches. However, there are no minimum pace times and we welcome swimmers of all speeds.
The cost of the regular, 12-month DSC membership is $634. A $15 Masters Swimming Ontario (MSO) insurance fee is additional and mandatory for each membership (for both competitive and non-competitive swimmers). An additional Swim Ontario (SO) insurance fee of $35.00 will be required for those members who wish to compete in an SO-sanctioned swim meet such as the provincial master's swim meet. The Ontario HST applies to the membership fee but not the insurance fees.
A reduced 12-month DSC membership fee of $443.80 is available to seniors (age 65+) and current full-time students (proof of enrollment required).
