SQUADS is our pre-swim club program for children who have completed their Swim Kids progressions (Ages 5 + up) and want to further develop their swim technique in a fun team-training atmosphere where the elements of competition are introduced. Ideal for pre-swim club or extra practice for those already in swim club, we focus on four competitive strokes (front crawl, back craw, breaststroke and butterfly), starts, turns and finishes and we throw in some water polo for fun!
Classes have a maximum of 6 students.
In SQUADS we encourage an active lifestyle for children and youth through healthy competition and building a strong community.
A message from Coach Matt
Hey everyone, I’m Matthew Tran. I’ve coached with the WETS program before and am thrilled to be back on the squad teaching… SQUADS. I hope to bring a great amount of excitement, a pinch of competitiveness that I hope will drive the swimmers to be their absolute best and a fire that comes with wanting to see everyone succeed.
When I’m not busy with aquatics, I am in class pursuing a Bachelor of Education Degree at UBCO hoping to eventually become an Elementary School Teacher. I coach for the UBCO Masters Swim Club, as well as the OKM Swim Academy, currently I’m the Head Coach of the Kelowna Ogopogos, and I coach the competitive Rock Climbing team at Gneiss Climbing. I’m pretty easily found, if you ever need me just head towards the booming voice…
