Program Information

Varsity swimmers are ambassadors and representatives of the St. John’s Legends in Canada and abroad. They also are mentors to our current swimmers.  Varsity swimmers who wish to continue their swimming journey in their off-season through participation with the Legends can apply through our Associate Swimmer Policy. 

St. Johns Legends Swim Club program is designed to foster the pursuit of excellence and support swimmers in the development of a successful swimming career. Our training groups are designed to complement the abilities and skill development of all athletes. The program is designed and follows the Appropriate Athlete Development (previously known as LTAD) outlined by Swimming Canada.

The objective of the pre-competitive program is to identify and inspire swimmers to participate in a competitive program. In these groups, we will teach and help swimmers to develop all 4 competitive strokes, develop competitive skills, and prepare the swimmer to make a successful transition into our competitive program.

The St. John's Legends Swim Club Summer Camps will provide your swimmer with a fun summer, swim-focused, camp experience with a focus on improving their swimming technique. Participants will be in the water for two one-hour sessions throughout the day separated by fun camp activities such as crafts, games, and outdoor activities (when the weather allows). 

  • Ideal for swimmers in both Lil Legends levels, Legends 13 and under, or swimmers interested in an aquatic-focused summer camp experience.  
  • Swimmers must be able to swim 1 length (25m) of Free, Back, and Breast each, unassisted to participate in the camps.
  • Participants who are not currently registered as swimmers with a Swimming Canada Swim Team will be registered with Swimming Canada for purposes of attending the camp. 
  • Participants must bring their own: swimming gear, active wear (t-shirt, running shoes, shorts), lunch and snacks, sunblock, and a filled water bottle.
  • Swimmers who have participated in a week of summer swim camp will be evaluated for placement on the Legends Swim Team for the 2024-25 season and will not have to attend a tryout in the fall.
