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 or Winter 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.

* Due to the early closure of Monpetit pool at the University of Ottawa for spring maintenance we've had to book our week day practice at Lowertown pool.  Swim dates, and times are always subject to the availability of pool rentals. Sometimes our practices will change do to the closure of the pools for spring cleaning and maintenance. We do our best to give our swimmers advanced notice of any changes to the schedule.
