Meets take place on a single day and are generally held in the Toronto area or within a two hour driving distance.

Additional notes

We invite our Novice athletes to club events and fundraising events but participation is not mandatory. A schedule of club events will be provided in the fall. Our novice program is a competitive program and a team sport so attendance and punctuality at all practices is crucial to the success of the program. A mandatory parent meeting will be held at the beginning of the program to review details of the program for the season.

Our Novice program does not run over the Christmas holidays or March Break. Practices are cancelled on statutory holidays. There may be occasional pool bumps where we may need to relocate a practice due to the facility issues or unforeseen events. We will keep you informed as they come up.
