CANCELLED: Canadian Masters Swimming Championships

Following the lead of the International Olympic Committee, International Paralympic Committee, Canadian Olympic Committee and Canadian Paralympic Committee, Swimming Canada has announced the cancellation of all summer 2020 national events due to the global COVID-19 pandemic.

This includes the Canadian Masters Swimming Championships (May 22-24, Etobicoke, Ont.), Canadian Junior Championships (July 22-27, Montreal), and Canadian Swimming Championships (Aug. 6-9, Edmonton).

“The world needs healing. It takes time. The sun will rise again for the most celebrated Games, and for our Canadian championships. The athletes will awe us with their amazing talents once more. The world just needs some time to heal. Once the storm is over, we will swim again,” El-Awadi said.

Circuits/stretching sessions to do at home

Hi all! It must feel so odd not to be in the water. Since we will not be swimming for a while, I encourage you to stay active. To aid with this, I will be adding some circuit training and stretching sessions for you to complete at home. You can find these where I have posted the swim practices. By no means do you have to complete these; only use if you would like to. I will be adding a new session 3-4x per week, and have just updated the first circuit tonight. I also want to add a disclaimer that I am not a personal trainer; please use your discretion when completing the sessions, and respect your body’s boundaries. If you have any questions or feedback, please email me at vlovsin@ualberta.ca

All pool workouts suspended until further notice

We will provide updates as we can with regards to our returning to the pool. In the meantime, please take this time to enjoy the things that you can. We are looking at providing some home workouts to help keep you active and to give you something to do at home in these weird times. Stay well, stay positive and here’s hoping we’ll see you all back in the pool sooner rather than later.
