Pal personally designs the workouts so that there are variations with respect to distances as well as stokes used. He is happy to help members to improve their swimming techniques during practice.
Club members have the opportunity to enter swim meets during course of the year. These meets offer members the chance to test their swimming abilities in a friendly non-competitive atmosphere.
The list of local swim meets:
Popsidwell Pentathlon Provincials Nationals – held at different locations across Canada
The club holds certain social activities during the course of the year.
A tradition is the annual Progressive Supper held in May of each year. Informal weekly activities include breakfast after Saturday morning practice and beers and nachos after Thursday night practice.
On Sundays during the spring & summer, some club members will get together to go cycling. During the winter, some club members will get together to go cross-country skiing on Sundays.
If you have any questions about the club, you can contact the club. A member of the club executive will get back to you within a week.
Access to the Joyce Fromson Pool (25 meter lanes and a diving tank) is through the Frank Kennedy building at the University of Manitoba. Masters swimmers just need to inform the staff at the Equipment Desk that they are masters swimmers and they will be admitted to the locker rooms. You will need to supply your own lock. There is often parking available in the lot in front of the building. If not there are many other lots in the area. (Check the map at the University of Manitoba link above). New swimmers can join us at any practice
