Wait list for Registration

Posted by Chatham Pool Sharks at Oct 21, 2021 9:31AM PDT

Please be advised, the Swim Sharks are mandated to cap the number of swimmers we are permitted, at this time.
This is to ensure safety for all of the swimmers during covid. Two swimmers per lane is the current maximum.
The Sharks are obligated to follow these safety precautions as part of our Swim Ontario Affiliation and permission to swim at the YMCA.

We are hoping that additional swimmers will soon be permitted in each lane. At this time we have created a “wait list”.
In a few weeks, the Sharks will inquire about allowing more children to join in the pool.

Should you have any questions feel free to connect with us at:

Your support and cooperation is greatly appreciated.

Prior to each swim practice or event, swimmers (parents) are asked to complete the attached Covid Symptom Screening.
This must be emailed to the
To be completed on the same day, PRIOR to entering the pool area.

Many thanks.

Please read the attached document.

Swim Try outs need to be scheduled accordingly, in compliance with the YMCA safety protocol, in addition to Swim Ontario policies.

Hope to see you soon!
