The swimming team

A WORD FROM THE HEAD COACH

The Pointe-Claire swimming team is a team at the forefront. We are constantly on the lookout for best practices in the swimming world.

Experienced and passionate coaches ensure that the full potential of each of our athletes is maximized. We are ready to travel around the world to offer many challenges and achieve world-class goals.

In short, the POINTE-CLAIRE experience is unique in the world … You are not part of a team; you are part of a family.

HISTORY OF THE SWIMMING CLUB

The current swim team was created in 1967 by George Gate. Very quickly, the elite development philosophy and the exceptional recruiting system boosted the performance of the athletes.

Since its founding, the team has contributed to the success of 16 Olympic athletes and has won 5 Olympic medals. The swimming team also has more than 250 national champions.

Even today, the new generation of coaches and athletes applies the fundamentals, vision and philosophy of founder George Gate.
