About the Club
Our goal is to encourage participation in club activities, providing a sense of belonging, with a focus on personal excellence. The club promotes the development of commitment, integrity and self-esteem in our youth, through professional coaching. Swimmers enter the program at a developmental level, remain with the Club until they leave high school, and graduate with the ability to train and compete at a University level. Swimmers who pursue excellence as a member of the Orillia Channel Cats Swim Club learn discipline, commitment, and a keen competitive instinct that enriches all aspects of their lives. Channel Cats swimmers can apply the skills they learn as competitive swimmers in pursuit of personal excellence throughout their lives.
Swimming is an individual sport that is significantly enhanced by the team atmosphere of the Orillia Channel Cats Swim Club. Swimmers have success when they work together as a team, as well as individually, to realize their maximum potential. Successful swimmers not only strive for excellence in competitive swimming, but also become well-rounded, autonomous individuals who will continue to strive for personal excellence in all they do.
Whether you are striving to complete the first four lengths in Novice, or qualifying for Nationals, we will make this program highly successful.
