Swimming

Special Olympics swimming is popular world wide, and that is also true in Durham Region. Unlike other sports, swimming is a life skill that is taught, first, to ensure safety and, secondly, for sports and competition purposes. Players aged 8+ (Uxbridge) and 13+ (Oshawa) with basic swimming skills may enroll in one of the two programs offered.

Enrollment for swimming is available online for registered athletes beginning Sept 1 (programs start after that date, depending on the program). Note that any enrollment after the end of the season (i.e. after May until Aug 31) is not for the next season - you must wait until Sept 1 to enroll online for the next season.
