Could you swim 5 km in 2 hours or less?

UXBRIDGE: The Uxbridge Swim Club had all Swimmers on deck and in the water, on Saturday, April 23rd, for the Club’s Annual Swim-A-Thon fundraiser. The fundraiser, running at multiple Swim Clubs across the Country, is set up and run by Swimming Canada.

Swimmers are challenged to complete 200 x 25m lengths of the UxPool in the allotted time of 2 hours (or less). Funds received, through sponsorship of individual swimmers, help with club operations, pool rental fees, equipment etc. By fundraising, the Club is able to keep fees as low as possible, so the Club is as accessible as possible for the young people in the community.

Coaches, Sarah Steinke and Taylor Ostrander, said, “The goal of our Club is to provide every member [with] an opportunity to improve swimming skills and achieve success at their level of ability. The Uxbridge Swim Club is highly focused on the pursuit of excellence in swimming, through leadership, fitness and competition”.

As things have opened up, according to Public Health Authorities’ guidance, we will be seeing our local swimmers compete in events more regularly. Something they have not been able to do for just about two years. In fact, the Club will be hosting a swim meet at UxPool this coming weekend, April 29th to May 1st.

Thanks to the dedication of the Coaching Staff, Board of Directors and Parent Volunteers, the Uxbridge Swim Club continued during the period of “Covid downtime,” both in the pool under restrictive measures, when allowed, and virtually when Ux Pool was closed. Consequently, Swimmers are ready for competition and are excited to be back in the water.

If your child is interested in joining the Club, email Coach Sarah Steinke, at coachsteinke@gmail.com. For more information on the Uxbridge Swim Club, check them out online, at https://www.teamunify.com/Home.jsp?_tabid_=0&team=canusc.
