EMSC Summer Season – Tuesday, June 15 – Sunday, August 29, 2021
Summer Swimming is back!
We are excited to be starting back in the water on Tuesday, June 14th. As of June 12th, our pool times are as follows.( Please note that we are aiming to be as accurate as possible but there may be changes.) With the exception of cancellations due to thunderstorms we will do our utmost to advise of any changes well in advance.
Queen Elizabeth Outdoor Pool (June & July) – Tuesday 8-9:00 pm Thursday 8-9:00 pm (these sessions are now FULL)
Fred Broadstock Outdoor Pool (June-August) – Sunday session 1 – 9-10:00 am – Sunday session 2 10-11:00 am
Please note that the Tuesday & Thursday workouts from August 3 through to, and including August 19th, will be at an indoor location to be confirmed at a later date. We will finish the season outdoors at Queen Elizabeth on August 24th & 26th from 6:30-7:30pm.
Our evening slots are now full but we still have space on Sunday mornings!
Training costs are as follows:
1 session/week – $85, 2 sessions/week – $175
Please note that if you plan to swim for 2 hours on Sunday that the coach may ask you to swim in a different lane to accommodate those who are coming for a one-hour session. The Sunday sessions were not intended as a continuous practice and there may be some challenges for those who wish to use it as such.
If you were not registered with EMSC in 2020-2021 then you will need to pay an additional $37.00 for registration with SWIM ALBERTA (to be completed by the EMSC Registrar). Please add this fee on top of your selected training fees.
Our 1:1 sessions will continue until April 3. We know that the Government will be updating whether we will be moving to step 3. Step 3 included adult team sports but we don’t know what that will look like. Kinsmen is keeping their current bookings for user groups up to April 5 as they are also not sure what the announcement this week may bring.
Once there is an announcement, and if it has any impact on our club, your board will discuss the implications and let you know.
Good news? Bad news? Or simply the unknown.
We have been offering 1:1 sessions in the pool with Alex & Lili and continue to do so up to this Saturday, March 20. We have had nothing more from Kinsmen as to our pool bookings beyond that.
It is likely they are awaiting updates from the Government of Alberta as the next step of reopening could include access to the facility as a member of the public. Should anything change we will advise the membership.
We will continue to offer 1:1 training as a chance to return to the pool for those who are able until such time that we are able to return to the pool as a group. Once the public times return we will consider reducing our 1:1 sessions but have been getting positive feedback about the sessions that have been offered so we would like to continue supporting our coaches and our swimmers who are looking for some coaching and feedback.
Stay tuned and we will update as we have more information.
The booking calendar has been updated for tomorrow and for weekday sessions up to March 20th.
Please check out the Registration page for more info about this season as registration is now open.
