Wetaskiwin ORCAS Lifesaving Club

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

The City of Wetaskiwin Recreation Department is thrilled to once again be able to offer the Wetaskiwin Orcas Lifesaving Club to the community. We know many of you have not been in the water for some time and that it may seem like starting over for some of our more competitively driven swimmers, but we are hopeful that with time and practice we can pick up where the previous season ended. We will see you all back in the water soon.

It is the goal of the Wetaskiwin Orcas Lifesaving Club to provide a safe and fun environment that allows individuals to improve and grow in both their swimming ability and lifesaving skills. By providing leadership and knowledge, this program strives to give swimmers the potential to achieve, challenge, and set personal bests in practices and at competitions.

The Orca’s program is organized into two branches: Recreation squads and Competitive squads. In our Recreation squads, swimmers will focus on development of basic swimming abilities and lifesaving skills. Competitive Squads will focus on Lifesaving Sport and will encourage swimmers to build on existing swimming skills and their spirit of competition. These programs give us the diversity to include swimmers with varying levels of skill, competition, and motivation.

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 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 Opens August 1st, 2021, for Returning Members and will open for new members on August 23rd, 2021.
