North Toronto Masters Swim Club

North Toronto Masters Swim Club is now in it's 19th year of making waves. We swim out of three locations (two pools are within a 8 minute drive of one another) during the fall, winter and spring. In the Summer, from mid June to late August, the Club trains in the Beaches.

  • The  North Toronto Memorial Community Centre, a 6 lane 25 meter pool located in the center of the City, just west of Yonge & Eglinton at 200 Eglinton Ave. West.

  • Havergal College, a brand new 6 lane 25 meter pool located at 1451 Avenue Rd, on the corner of Avenue Rd. and Lawrence Ave. West. Click on the map for pool location at the College

 

  • Donald Summerville Pool, an outdoor 50.4 meter/55.2 yards/165.5feet/ (long story) pool located in the east Beaches.

We have a mix of swimmers on the team - ranging from ex-Olympic Team Members, World Masters Record Holders, Pro Tri-athletes and individuals who want to get into the sport of swimming.

The minimum requirement to join the NTMSC is you must be 20 years of age, able to swim 100m in under 2:20 as well swim 800m non stop.

WE ARE NOT A LEARN TO SWIM PROGRAM!

WE ARE A HIGH PERFORMANCE MASTERS SWIM CLUB WITH HIGH PERFORMANCE COACHING!!

If you are a swimmer or triathlete  who is interested in getting into better swimming shape and improving your stroke to swim more efficient, or a ex-Olympic swimmer who wants to stay in shape, we have a work-out for you!! And don't forget we also have lots of social events!

The North Toronto Pool is the Club's main pool with strong emphasis on high end swimming. Havergal is going to have a few lanes set aside for high end swimming, but the majority of the emphasis is going to be stroke improvement and swimming efficiency for Tri-athletes. You can see more information on how we coach Triathletes in the pool at the Masters Swimming Canada Website!

To prevent overcrowding at any one pool this season, everyone's membership is going to be specific to one of our 2 pools. The North Toronto Pool; 3 workouts a week - Monday, Wednesday and Saturdays, Havergal Pool; 2 workouts a week - Tuesday and Thursdays.
