We are not a learn to swim program! We are a High Performance Masters Swim Club with High Performance Coaching!! We have a mix of swimmers on the team - ranging from ex-Olympic Team Members, World Masters Record Holders, Pro Tri-athletes and individuals who want better themselves in the sport of swimming - our coaching staff is there to help everyone achieve their goals.
The minimum requirement to join the NTMSC is you must be 20 years of age, be able to swim a set of 4 x 100 @2:15 pace time and be able to swim 600 metres freestyle non stop. The reason for this requirement is that everyone is at a set minimum standard for the workout written by the Coaches.

In the Summer, from mid June to late August we offer a drop in swim program in the Beaches. If you are a swimmer or triathlete who is interested in getting into better swimming shape and improving your stroke to swim more efficient, or a ex-Olympic swimmer who wants to stay in shape, we have a work-out for you!! And don't forget we also have lots of social events!

Due to popular demand we will do a trial run of having the option of making up a workout during the week, if you miss one of your regular workouts, you can go to another groups. There will be limited spaces for those who want to cross over workouts from each group on a regular basis. This option does not apply towards the Saturday Group.
The Monday, Wednesday Group is a strong emphasis on high end swimming. The Tuesday & Thursday Group is going to have a few lanes set aside for high end swimming, but the majority of the emphasis is going to be stroke improvement and swimming efficiency for Triathletes. You can see more information on how we coach Triathletes in the pool at the Masters Swimming Canada Website! The Saturday Group is going to be a tough workout!
