New Equipment Policy

There have been many changes to the Ogopogo Swim Club over the last few months due to COVID-19. As we return to the pool we have had to look at our equipment use and storage. We are no longer permitted to share equipment among swimmers, as we have in the past. The team is also no longer permitted to store equipment on the pool deck.

We will now be requiring all swimmers to have their own equipment and a mesh bag to bring it to practice.

Groups A-D: Jr. kickboard, fins, paddles and a pull buoy.
Group E and Ogies: Jr. kickboard and fins

Many swimmers were able to purchase the old team equipment at a discounted price. If you need to purchase new equipment the team has a discount code to use at Team Aquatic Supplies. Please email ogocommuncations@gmail.com for the discount code.

This is a time of transition and adjustment the coaches will not be expecting swimmers to have all the gear right away. However, please bring what you have to practice each day.

Our hope is that all swimmers will have their own equipment by the start of the winter session.
