New to swimming, or looking to stay fit? Our Fit Swim and XTrain programs may be right for you! These programs are non-competitive, but still offer great training and skill development for youth between the ages of 10-15. If you are interested in joining our Fit Swim or XTrain programs, please contact our Head Coach for more information.

FitSwim is open to swimmers aged 10-13 who are able to swim 25 metres of freestyle (front crawl) and backstroke comfortably, and who are still working on developing their technique and endurance. 

XTrain is open to swimmers aged 11-15 who are confident swimmers. This is a great option for those who are former competitive swimmers, those who are interested in triathlon or cross training, or those who are currently pursuing lifesaving / lifeguarding courses and want to improve their technique and / or endurance. Swimmers entering XTrain should be able to swim a minimum of 100 metres continuously to enter this program. 

NEW for 2023-24: FitSwim & XTrain will be a part of Swim Alberta's I CAN SWIM program - this gives summer swim club athletes an opportunity to swim between summer seasons, while still being able to compete as usual in the summer! Please contact Coach Cara for more information.

For economically priced swim suits and training fins, Decathlon has some reasonable options.Their durability may not be quite as comparable to well-established brands such as Speedo, Arena, Dolpfin and TYR however they may be a good entry point for our pre-competitive swimmers. 

Goggles should be high-quality and well-fitted. AVOID the multipack Speedo or TYR goggles, or Speedo Hydrospex - these are for recreation will not stay on when diving and WILL leak. Aquashpere mask / comfort style goggles are NOT recommended. Reccomended options are:


Fit Swim / XTrain swimmers may transition into our Competitive stream in January, with Coach recommendation. Swimming Canada registration fees will be adjusted to reflect the change in registration level, with the balance due when the move to the new training group takes effect. 

Fit Swim / XTrain swimmers will have an opportunity to participate in ONE swim meet (December 2023, February 2024 or May 2024) to try a competition and see if it is something they would like to pursue. There may also be opportunities for these swimmers to participate in a June triathlon, the July Diamond Valley Splash & Dash, and / or an open water race with our competitive swimmers.
