Burnaby Mountain Mantas Swim Club

Burnaby Mountain Mantas Swim Club is a non-profit youth organization that is part of the British Columbia Summer Swimming Association.  We train mainly out of Kensington outdoor pool and CG Brown Pool.  Summer is our competitive season, so starting May 1 our swimmers swim anywhere from 5 to 8 times per week all summer long.  The price of the program is roughly $480 per summer season (16 weeks), which includes all practices, swim meets, one t-shirt and one bathing cap.

Swimmers are placed into groups of about 8-10 swimmers with one coach.  They stay with this same group and coach for the entire summer.  Our coaches are paid coaches, most of them high school students from Burnaby. All membership fees collected go towards paying for the pool time, coaches and other operating costs.

We will be following all COVID19 rules, including social distancing.  While our club normally runs at 100% capacity, our numbers have gone down by about one half of our normal numbers due to the pandemic.  We will be opening up membership for new swimmers.
