Wetaskiwin ORCAS Lifesaving Club

Welcome to the official page of the Wetaskiwin Orcas Lifesaving Club.

Last year our season was cut short and Provincials had to be cancelled due to the Covid-19 pandemic. This came as a disappointment to all the swimmers and to the coaches. Throughout the 2019-2020 season we watched so many of you improve and develop your swimming and lifesaving techniques and were saddened that we as a team were not able to put those skills to the test at Provincials.

For the 2020-2021 season, there will be no sanctioned Competitions or Provincials hosted in the province and all National and International events have been postponed until 2022. Because of this, our season will focus more heavily on stroke improvement and lifesaving sport skills. There is the potential to host a time trial event at our home pool and have those times uploaded to the lifesaving society website (lifesaving.org), just as they would be at a sanctioned competition. However, doing it this way does mean that provincial records cannot be set for the season.

The Orca’s program is organized into two branches: Recreation squads and Competitive squads. Recreation squads will not be offered for the 2020-2021 Orca season. Competitive Squads will focus on Lifesaving Sport and will encourage swimmers to build on existing swimming skills and their spirit of competition.

To ensure that swimmers are given the best training possible, we will be accepting a limited number of registrations in each squad.  Please return your registration or register online as soon as possible to secure a spot in the squad of your choice. Final placement of swimmers will be based on individual skills and at the recommendation of the Head Coach. Please call or email if you have any additional questions or concerns.

Registration for session 1 of the 2020-2021 season opens September 14, 2020.
