We are happy to announce our summer programing schedule. Our Riptides summer swimming sessions are intended for new and/or current swimmers interested in Olympic Way program and Los Angeles group

*The classes have been divided up into 4 different levels. Please check the Program Details for each level before registering. Not sure what level to register your swimmer? Contact admin@nanaimoriptides.com with your swimmer's info (eg, age, last swim class completed...)

We will be running our Riptides summer swimming sessions at the Nanaimo Aquatic Centre from Monday to Friday on the following weeks:

July 4th-8th - closed

July 11th-15th - closed

July 18th-22nd - closed

July 25th - 29th - closed

August 8th-12th - open

August 15th-19th - open

Each class is 40 or 45 minutes long, dependent on class level.  Participants will select an 8:30am. 9:20am or 10:10am.space. The cost of each week-long summer swimming session is $85 or $95 dependent on class level.

**Please register for the same level for all the weeks you want your swimmer(s) in and we can move them accordingly if they are assessed for the next level. We cover a lot in each level so it is common to stay in the same level for 2 - 3 times​. We have allocated space for group movements just in case.​

Olympic Way is a learn-to-swim program that teaches young swimmers the skills necessary to become proficient swimmers.  Participants in this program learn to swim more efficiently and in less time than traditional programs. This pre competitive program prepares swimmers for a smooth transition into our Nanaimo Riptides competitive program.
