Some of the more common questions about our club are also answered below in our FAQs. 

I have added my swimmer to the wait list. How long might we wait to join the club?

​​​​​​​There is more demand for space in the club than we can fulfill at this time. Bringing in news swimmers depends on the level of the swimmer coming in and where there is room in the groups. When you sign up for an assessment your swimmer will come in and show some of their skills to a coach. This assessment takes between 10 - 15 minutes. When a space becomes available a spot will be offered. This is only achieveable when spaces become available. 

Is there individual funding available for athletes?

Funding is available through the KidsSport Provincial funding which accepts applications on an ongoing basis. The information and application is here: 

The Canadian Tire Jumpstart program accepts applications.

How do I know if my child should be attending meets?

Coaches discuss meets in advance with their swimmers. It is the expectation that swimmers are training with the intention of swimming at competitive meets.  Meet information is sent out in advance for registration and you can review the expected meet schedule here. Talking to your child's coach can help you make a plan for which meets your child will attend over the season. 

How do I get a hold of my child's coach?

It can be hard to get time one on one with your child's coach as they are often on deck looking after numerous other swimmers. The best way to make sure you get a chance to chat with your coach when they are ready to talk about your athlete without distraction is by setting up an apppointment via email. The coaches can be reached at tbsccoach@gmail.com.

How can I best support my swimmer?

Making sure your child is on deck on time for practice is the single best thing you can do to support your swimmer as a blueback. 

During meets, the best thing you can do for your swimmer after their races is to tell them they did great, give them a hug and make sure they talked to their coach after their race for coach feedback.
