Private Coaching & Training

Looking for a program to work on your swimming skills? We are offering private swim coaching for stroke development, endurance and/or aquatic fitness. Private Coaching is a great option for participants who are not ready for a Masters level swim team and want to improve their stroke efficiency.

If you have any questions about private coaching & training, please contact Emily Dunn, Aquatics Program Supervisor at dunne@canadagamescentre.ca .
