Glenmore’s Teams = A Summer of Fun!!

Glenmore Pool has a variety of teams available for many interests and all ages! Joining a team at Glenmore will allow kids and adults alike to experience the dynamics of summer pool life, a great combination of competition, skill development and FUN!

Teams at Glenmore: Swim Team, Water Polo, Diving and Synchronized Swimming.

Swim Team

There are 5 Swim meets during the regular season, on Wednesday evenings in July, either at Glenmore or other pools in the N.A.A.* Fun introduction to or a continuation of competition! At the end of the regular season, those who have participated in at least 2 regular swim meets may swim in the Time Trials*. Those who qualify at Time Trials may swim in the Big Meet*.

Our swim team is divided into 6 categories:

6yrs and under: can’t swim yet? That’s okay; our lifeguards and leaders are in the water to help the kids along! Practices are 12:30 – 1:00pm Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays. There will be at least one Fun Meet in the season for this age group, with great games and prizes! You’ve got to see it!!

8yrs and under: still doggie paddling? That’s okay; you’ll be flying down the lanes by summer’s end! (Level 5 or higher recommended). Practices are 12:30 – 1:15 pm Monday through Friday.

9 and 10yrs: a little harder now! 2 laps!! But you can do it!!! Practices are 12:30 – 1:15pm Monday through Friday. Fun, skill improvement, competitive edge.

11 and 12yrs: You’re moving up! Practices are 1:15 – 2:00pm Monday through Friday. Compete and have fun at the same time!

13 and 14yrs: you are there! Set the example!! Practices are 1:15 – 2:00pm Monday through Friday. Compete, have fun, do great!!

15yrs and over: Moms, Dads, alumni this one is for you, too! Practices are 1:15 – 2:00pm Mondays through Fridays. Never too old to swim an extra lap!!

Personal Best Program: at Glenmore, we love to compete! Sometimes our swimmers win, and sometimes they don’t. No matter what, all participants are winners to us, because we get points for every lane we fill in a race. Our coaches want to encourage the very best from each swimmer and will help them achieve their own personal improvement. A chart will indicate which swimmers improved on their time from one swim meet to the next.

Swim Meets: Each Wednesday starting at 5:30pm. 2 pools get together to out cheer and out swim each other.

Parent Participation: As well as cheering on your kids, your help is required at the swim meets, both at Glenmore and away. All swim meets are run almost exclusively by volunteers and Glenmore, like all pools, must supply their own help or face penalties or disqualification!

* North Shore Aquatic Association: oversees regulations for competitions for all member pools.

* Time Trials: Time trials are held in all 3 divisions (A, B & C) on the same date and thereafter all of the times involved from the 19 pools in the NAA are compiled to determine those eligible for the Big Meet.

  • At the end of the regular season, those who have participated in at least 2 regular swim meets may qualify to swim in the Time Trials

  • From our 10 and under swim teams, 3 swimmers from each age group will be chosen to compete in each event, as well as 2 relay teams. From our 11 and up teams, 2 swimmers are chosen per event and 1 relay team.

*Big Meet: Only 2 swimmers for each event will participate in the finals, if they qualify in the top 12 overall from the 19 pools, which compete in the Time Trials. Though your child may finish in the top 12, Glenmore can only send 2 swimmers per event, so he/she must finish with the best or second best time out of the other Glenmore swimmers.

To join the following teams, it is recommended that participants have obtained Level 6 or the equivalent in swimming lessons.

Water Polo Teams

One of the fastest paced games around!! What is it? A water polo game consists of 4 to 7-minute periods, typically 6 players per team, in which you try to score on the other team, like in soccer, but with contact and using hands to pass the ball, all while treading water!

There are 5 water polo teams at Glenmore; mixed 12yrs and under, girls 14yrs and under, boys 14yrs and under, girls 16yrs and under and boys 16yrs and under. Practices are from 8:00 – 9:30am Tuesdays and Thursdays.

Games are played in the evenings at Glenmore or another NAA pool, starting times may vary depending on the host pool.

Mixed and boys games are on Tuesdays and the girls play on Fridays. At the end of the regular season there are playoffs and finals in all categories.

Water polo is very popular at Glenmore, our experienced coaches are dedicated to passing on their knowledge and passion for this sport!

We are proud of the fact that all of our 5 teams won gold medals at NAA Water Polo Finals in 2015.

We have a Water Polo-A-Thon in July open to all team players and also swimmers who are not on a team. Great fun!!

Diving Team

Tucks, Pikes, inwards, layouts? Not sure what or how? Why not join our Diving Team and learn how. It is like gymnastics in the air and into water!

Our coaches are here to teach even the faint of heart!

Divers compete in 4 categories: Pre Junior. Junior, Intermediate and Senior based on their age and diving skills.

Practices are 5:30 – 6:30pm Mondays and Tuesdays, Competitions are on Thursday evenings against other NAA pools in our NAA division, and starting times vary depending on host pools. At the end of the season there are Diving Division Sections (qualifier for finals) and Diving finals.

Synchronized Swimming

Synchronized swimming is a remarkable sport!! It’s like ballet in water, upside down while holding your breath, choreographed to music!

Team Placements are held in June. All interested swimmers will be placed on a team, duet or in a solo. Swimmers compete in Pre Junior (team only), Junior and Senior based on age and ability.

Pre Junior team will compete at NAA Pre Junior Finals in August, Junior and Senior teams, Duets and Solos will compete at NAA Prelims in July and NAA Synchro Finals in August.
