Once the team is selected, there will be a fee of $1000 to join the team for the season (September to April). Swimmers are encouraged to apply for bursaries to offset the cost. Details below (under "Paperwork and Forms").
We ask that all swimmers donate to the team on Giving Tuesday. However, this is not required. Giving Tuesday is on Tuesday, November 29. Funds donated early in the day are matched by Carleton. Those who donate are requested to do so early in the day, preferably just after midnight Monday. We thank all those who are able to support the team. The donation link and FB event are below.

Workouts will start Wednesday September 7. The first ten days will be open tryouts. Everyone should attend as many tryout workouts as possible. The team will be selected from all those who attend the tryouts. Swimmers are selected as general team members (i.e. not selected for specific events.)
Once the team is selected, swimmers are expected to attend at least five swim workouts per week. For those with conflicts with classes, alternate arrangements can be made.
If possible, bring paddles (finger paddles and regular paddles [stroke maker is best, but any regular paddles are fine]), fins [any brand], and a snorkel to workout. Carleton has kick boards, pull buoys and fins.
Swimmers will be informed if they have been selected for the team by Sunday September 18.

Swimmers may arrange a 30 minute Athletic Therapy appointment by booking here. Be sure to select "CLUB - 30 min AT treatment (with Sarah)" at the upper right before selecting your appointment. These sessions happen in the first aid room of the Ice House (room 13).
Please note, there is a $30/treatment fee charged at the beginning of each session. This payment is cash only. You will be issued a receipt and may choose to attempt to be reimbursed through insurance.
A few student-athletes each week can get free massages on Wednesday from Algonquin College students studying Massage Therapy. Inquire and book at Varsity Athletic Therapy, the room by the Alumni Hall doors to Parking Lot 5 and the Fieldhouse.
To be eligible to swim on the Varsity team, there are a lot of forms to complete.
