2023-2024 Carleton Ravens Swim Team General Information

Nico Belisle, ROC Swimming, is our head coach for 2023-2024, as Pierre Lafontaine is taking a sabbatical to coach in China.

The training schedule is below. Note that you are expected to attend at least five swim workouts per week. (If your course schedule does not permit this, we can provide workouts that can be done during Carleton's lane swims.) The dryland workout schedule will be finalized later.

Equipment to bring to the pool:

The competition schedule is posted below.

There is a fee of $1200 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").

The first $200 payment is due on or before Friday September 22. You may pay by cash, cheque, or e-transfer payable to Lynn.Marshall@carleton.ca.

2023-2024 Workout Schedule

Workouts will start Wednesday September 6. 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.

Note:Please do not come to the pool if you have flu or COVID symptoms!

Swimmers attending September tryouts will be informed if they have been selected for the team by Sunday September 17.

Note that swimmers may also tryout for the team later in the season.

Swimmers may arrange Athletic Therapy appointments by booking here. Be sure to select "CLUB - 30 min AT treatment - 30$ - with Sydney" at the upper left before selecting your appointment.

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 be reimbursed through insurance. For example, the Carleton students' insurance will refund $25 of each treatment up to a certain limit.

Massage Therapy

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.

Ravens Athlete Registration System: Athletics Portal

This needs to be completed by everyone every season. Note to returning swimmers: This replaces the old formstack.

Please follow these instructions to register:

  1. Use the following link to access the Ravens Athletics Portal.
  2. Select the “Create your Own Account” button on the home page.
  3. Enter your first and last name as you would on any document, using proper capitalization, and your Carleton cmail email address (name@cmail.carleton.ca). Then select the “Create Account” button.
  4. From here you will be redirected to the main dashboard where you can select “Register for a team or club”.
  5. Select the team(s) you are a part of and begin your registration.
  6. Once your registration is complete, the Ravens athletics staff will be able to view your registration and begin the approval process for the upcoming season.
  7. If you have issues downloading the blank medical form, here's a copy: Medical Form. A doctor's signature is not required.

Once you have completed the registration, you will be able to see your “Dashboard” consisting of red "X"s and green "check mark"s. The “X”s are not necessarily an indication that you have not completed the content. Each of these sections must be approved by Athletics Administration. The X will change to a check mark once these components have been verified. The Confirmation Page allows you to view all components and will identify any sections you may have missed. Please review the Confirmation Page carefully.

U Sports Portal Registration

All swimmers must register annually in the U Sports Central Portal. Go to: https://usportscentral.ca/. Please be sure to use your Carleton cmail e-mail address when setting up or accessing your account.

Returning swimmers: No cost. Click "Sign In" and follow the instructions. Note that you need your U Sports ID from last year -- let me know if you need this as I have a list. Once you are logged in, confirm your personal information (page by page) and be sure to sign off on the "Athlete Consent Acknowledgement". Please email me (or tell me) when you've completed this, as I don't get a confirmation email.

New swimmers: Cost is $50. Click "Register" and follow the instructions. After completion, please send me your U Sports ID as Carleton needs this for eligibility purposes. Once you have done that and have been added to Carleton's athlete list, I will let you know and you need to go back in and go through your profile page by page, and sign off on the "Athlete Consent Acknowledgement" on the last page of your profile.

If you encounter any difficulties with the system contact me.

Swim Canada Account

Once I register you with Swim Canada, you will get an email asking you to set up or confirm your account and to agree to several waivers.

Apply for a Bursary

Not required, but recommended if you have financial need. The deadline to apply is October 31st. Complete the Carleton Bursary application form in Carleton Central. You will only be permitted to fill this in if there are bursaries that you are eligible for. Some are for students eligible for OSAP and some are not. Check out the instructions.
