Competition is not a requirement but a possibility for Masters swimmers. In Fact, many of us do not compete.
Others do choose to compete in Masters swim meets sanctioned by Masters Swimming of Ontario (MSO). TMU is a registered club with MSO.
As of the 2017/2018 season MSO is independent of both Masters Swimming Canada (MSC) and Swim Canada and operates a fully insured adult swim league. The statement from MSO can be read here.
In order to compete in MSO sanctioned meets individual swimmers must be registered with Masters Swimming Ontario as well. This is done through the club and those interested in competing will be asked to submit a request for registration early in the Fall term. Details on how to do this will be circulated in due course.
A list of Masters swim meets in the GTA is available here and is updated as more information becomes available.
