jTOEST – The Junior Masters (13+)

Unless you are a swimmer who started at an early age (e.g. 5-8) with an age group swim club and progressed through the club’s levels, there aren’t many or maybe any swim clubs that accept an athlete new to swimming in their tweens or teens.  Considering that Canada’s most decorated swimmer – Penny Oleksiak – was rejected by several swim clubs because she couldn’t swim a full length at the age of 9, reveals how unique and important is our Junior Masters program. We believe there is a need for a Junior Masters program so that those athletes aged 12-17 who don’t necessarily fit into the existing infrastructure of age group swim clubs have the opportunity to start in the sport swimming at their level, and with athletes of more comparable maturity (as opposed to joining 6 or 7 year olds).

The Junior Masters Program, aka jTOEST is for…

  • Ex-club swimmers who want to continue swimming but in a skill and technique focused program, without the focus on competition like that of typical age group swim clubs;

  • High school swimmers who want to compete and qualify for OFSAA but need to supplement the training with their high school team with technique and stroke specific training;

  • High school swimmers who must compete in the Open category as a result of being on a waterpolo team or a synchronized swim team who need to supplement their high school swim team training; and,

  • Triathletes (U19) who need access to swim training or who want to supplement their swim training with the focus that an experienced swim and triathlon coach can offer.

Monthly fees have been grouped into 3 installments of 3 months and are payable as follows: (#1) at the time of registration, (#2) prior to Nov 15th, and (#3) prior to Feb 15th. Although training runs Sept-June (10months), due to the mid Sept start and the days off due to holidays, the total program cost was calculated across 9 months.

Last years fees were split into two: Winter (Sep-Mar) & Spring (Mar-Jun) due to the change in pools and training times resulting from the closure of Angela Coughlan Pool for renovations. For comparison, total fees from last year when Winter & Spring are combined were $1,320 (3x/wk). The increase in the fee reflects both an increase in pool rental rates as well as administrative fees and the cost of new training tools, the head coach continues to volunteer his time on deck.

Refund Policy:  jTOEST DOES NOT provide refunds. With programs focused on quality, on learning, on athlete’s making significant progress, hi athlete turnover rate would compromise coaching and the experience of all athletes. We ask that prior to registering that all commitments, calendars, etc… are reviewed to avoid joining when the risk is that the athlete will miss many sessions and/or the athlete will have to drop out. Once an athlete registers, they have a reserved spot in a lane for the entire duration of the program.
