ABOUT OUR PROGRAMS
Many families and swimmers join WRASA for our excellent reputation for technical training, athletic conditioning and competitive development. They like that we focus on fast swimming. Not necessarily winning, but beating your personal best.
But it seems all our families stay because of the fun. the culture, the friends and those endless summers spent being active and having fun with friends. Seriously, it doesn't get much better than that, does it?
Our competitive season is the summer, May to August. We train with dedication through the week and we test our new skills and improved speed on the weekends at meets. We also hang out with our friends and we are surrounded by other WRASA and swimming families.
In the fall and winter we train one to two hours per week. It's enough to keep us fit and swimming and still have time for other sports. This way we treat swimming as a really fun summer sport, not a year-round, 24/7 lifestyle. Many winter swimmers come to WRASA to put the fun back into swimming.

OCTOBER - APRIL
Winter Training provides stroke correction and dryland training to keep swimmers conditioned in the off-season and continue developing muscle memory from correct stroke technique.
WRASA Winter Training is limited to two (2) hours per week (Sun to Sat) abiding by the requirements to be a summer swimmer.
Sessions are held Saturdays and Sundays and are one hour each. Swimmers are grouped by age and ability and can train up to two hours weekly.
If you are done with swimming lessons and want more, or if you want to condition yourself for summer swimming, our Winter Training program offers an excellence balance of swim training and general fitness to get you ready for the competitive summer season.
WINTER TRAINING REGISTRATION
Term One (Oct to Dec) - September 1st
Term Two (Jan to Apr) - December 1st
The summer is our fun season. We start training in May and really get going after school is out.
We work on stroke development, technical improvement and competitive skills. We work on all four strokes and we develop our skill for starts, turns and finishes.
On weekends we compete in local meets throughout our region and sometimes outside of it too. We host an annual home meet at the beautiful new Grandview Heights Aquatic Centre, WRASA WRACES and all our swimmers swim that weekend. It's really fun.
Toward the end of the season, we participate in the Fraser South Regional Championships and then the BC Provincial Championships.
