Joining WSSC

Thank-you for your interest in joining the Whitchurch-Stouffville Swim Club!

WSSC offers a multi-level program designed to develop interest and participation in competitive swimming.  Swimmers are provided with a program to match their abilities and ambitions.  Physical conditioning and good health habits are encouraged.  Swimmers also learn team aspects of co-operation, responsibility and leadership, as well as individual dedication, confidence and self-esteem. An atmosphere is created in which the desire for self-improvement and goal achievement motivates the individual to develop their natural abilities and to help others do likewise.

To join WSSC, each new swimmer is required to attend an assessment conducted by a WSSC coach to ensure they are placed in the correct group based on their ability, age and swimming needs.  To arrange for an assessment, please contact [email protected]

What to Expect

Assessments take approximately 10-15 minutes.  Once completed, our coaches will discuss placement with the parent and our administrator will follow-up regarding registration.

Be sure to bring the following to the assessment:

  • Completed assessment form
  • Swimsuit
  • Goggles
  • Swim cap
  • Towel

​You can expect the coach to ask questions and get a basic understanding of the following:

  • How long have you been swimming?
  • Have you been on a team before?
  • Do you know how to swim all strokes?
