Dryland programs for SLSC

Posted by Dean Henze at Mar 31, 2020 10:31AM PDT ( 0 Comments )

Hi there. Below are some links to some dryland options for your swimmers while we are away from the pool. It should be noted that it is important that you realize that these programs are NOT mandatory and should be done in a safe controlled environment.

These are some articles I have found that may be helpful. The second one is inclusive for ALL ages and broken down by age groups with some exercise ideas for each age group.

Swim Ontario would like to thank the swimming community for their ongoing patience and cooperation during this turbulent time.

In alignment with Swimming Canada, Swim Ontario is cancelling all sanctioned competitions and events until April 20th, 2020. After that date, the situation will be re-evaluated to see if further measures need to be taken.

Swim Ontario has also decided to cancel all of our provincial and regional camps and tour teams until further notice.

In regards to club activities, Swim Ontario clubs and registrants need to defer to their local municipalities and facilities and the recommendations laid out by them, as well as to use their best judgement for the safety of their families and team members.

In regards to travel outside of Canada, we ask that everyone follow any provincial or federal recommendations.

We will continue to post any updates to our website as they become available and as the situation changes.
