I must confess that to me, swimming encompasses warm sand, hot sun, warmish water, beach blanket… and so on.
Yet there is a fraternity of Ottawans and visitors that love to jump or dive into a man-made body of water ~ a swimming pool ~ for exercise, relaxation or competition.
Are you one of those? Here is a list of swimming clubs in Ottawa where you can do just that.
Swimming clubs in Ottawa are listed in alphabetical order.

“Our philosophy is simple yet pragmatic. With three family generations involved at the elite level in the sport of swimming both as participants and as trainers, we understand that each person is different in the way they move through the water. However, we do believe in the basic physics that are optimal in order to swim faster by learning to swim easier. Balance, timing, and core rotation are trademark terms when it comes to swimming efficiently. The challenge is to break it down into understandable components that can be tailored to our students.”
