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.

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.

We are now standing on the doorstep of 2020. One more month to get all the training in that we had hoped to complete in 2019. One more month to reach our 2019 objectives, if they have not already been attained. One more month before all Masters Swimmers celebrate changing age and, perhaps, age group on January 1st.
