Winter Fee Options (12 week session):
12 drop-ins - $175.00
Unlimited Swims - $265.00

The drop-in option is the equivalent of 1 swim a week. We call it a drop-in so that if you miss a week or out of town etc. you can use those swims whenever you'd like in that 12 week period**. Unlimited swims are just that - swim as much as you'd like in that 12 week session.

Here's a break-down of each swim practice costs, based on how much you want to swim, and the package you chose:
OCM offers one free swim/trial swim for new members to come and check out the club and give us a try before you register. 
Registration and Payment Information:

OCM registers its members on a first come first serve basis.  You can complete a registration form before your first swim (please click on the link here) or you can complete the form at your first practice. Payment is to be made at your first practice each session, and can be made out to the Ottawa Centre Masters. We accept cheques, money orders, or cash. 

A club board member will be present to give/take your registration package, and collect your payment on the first practice you swim. We can also provide a receipt if required. 

If you didn't swim with us in the Fall please remember to include the annual $35 registration fee in your first payment - Registration fee payment is required for all members as we are an official Canadian Masters Swimming Club.
