* 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.
