By April 24, 2014Sports, Sports News

From Abbotsford Olympians Swim Club The Abbotsford Olympians Swim Club are holding a free lesson and tryout Weekend on Friday April 25 and Saturday April 26, 2014 at Matsqui Rec Centre pool.

The Abbotsford Olympians Swim Club (AOSC) is Abbotsford’s only year-round swim club. We are the only Swim BC , Swimming Canada and FINA affiliated club in Abbotsford.

We provide swimming and life skills for children five to eighteen years old based out of the Matsqui Recreation Center located at 3106 Clearbrook Road in Abbotsford.

AOSC sets itself apart from other programs with professionally certified and experienced coaches, a balanced long-term development approach to swimming, and as a great place to meet and male new friends in a co-ed environment.

AOSC first began operating in January of 2004 with offering two recreational programs – “Olympic Way” and “Stroke Improvement and Conditioning”.

In 2006, AOSC offered its first competitive program named “Regional Group” – a program intended for eight to ten year olds swimmers to achieve their regional qualifying times.

In 2007, AOSC expanded to a six-day week schedule and offered a “Provincial Group” whose purpose was to qualify swimmers for AA and AAA Provincial-Level competitions.

AOSC is fully associated with its sister club the Langley Olympians Swim Club (LOSC). Together at major competitions the two clubs combine resources and swim as L/A OSC (Langley/Abbotsford Olympians Swim Club).

In July 2008, L/A OSC placed second in the province at the Provincial AAA Championships. L/A OSC consistently places in the top five teams in the British Columbia. Also in June 2008, L/A OSC was unofficially ranked 10th in the country based on meet results across the country.

In 2008, Jake Tapp (LOSC) qualified for the Canadian Olympic Team and is heading to the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games.

It is the goals of AOSC to have everyone strive for personal excellence and achive their personal best. One day AOSC may have someone achieve their dream of going to the Olympics, but we belive that everyone can benefit from the pursuit of excellence, regardless of their level of swimming.
