New Swimmers

All new potential Penguin Swimmers (excluding Masters Swimmers) need to be evaluated prior to registering with the team. The evaluation process verifies a swimmer’s ability level and potential program placements.

New Swimmer Prerequisites:

  • Be comfortable jumping into and swimming in deep water
  • Ability to swim 25m Freestyle (Front Crawl) and 25m Backstroke)
  • Knowledge of Breaststroke and Butterfly is an asset


Evaluations are at MacEwan University (Map) and take approximately 30min. Swimmers will be evaluated by a certified National Coaching Certification Program (NCCP) swim coach. After a 10-15min water evaluation, the coach will then talk to parents about potential group placements and answer any questions they may have.

During the swimming season (September-June), individual evaluations are scheduled on Mondays and Wednesdays at 7:00 PM.

To schedule an evaluation, please contact the team at swim@penguinswimming.ca or 780-435-SWIM (7946) and let us know your swimmers name, age, swimming background (ie. highest swimming lesson level or competitive swimming experience) and we will get back to you to confirm an evaluation date.
