Joining VPSC

Is your athlete wanting to become a VPSC swimmer for the 2022-23 season? All incoming athletes must participate in an assessement and/or trial practice.

Assessments for September will be run in August at the Kerrisdale Community Centre Pool and Lord Byng Pool.

New Swimmer Assessments

Assessments for swimmer age 12&U take place in a group of 4-8 swimmers, and allow our coaches to view the swimmers' skills and ability. Swimmers age 13&O will need to complete a trial practice with a competitive group  to finalize their placement.


Entry Requirements

Our group placement is based on both age and ability - we determine age as of March 1st, 2023. The minimum age to join VPSC is 6 years old as of the first day, with no exceptions. All groups for swimmers age 13&O are competitive programs and require prior competitive experience. Below are the skills swimmers will be tested on during assessment - please note that this list is not exhaustive. All swimmers must be able to swim in deep water without assistance.

Contact us for more information.
