Registration

We offer three membership categories:

  • Full membership (with optional Summer extension)
  • Distance membership
  • Affiliate membership

Program enhancements: We plan to hold five stroke improvement sessions during the main season, as a ‘value-add’ for our full members.   These clinics and similar value-add activities are funded by swim meet revenue earned through members’ volunteer efforts at hosting events such as Provincial/National Championships  and the Kelowna Apple Open Water Invitational. We have introduced a $50 Volunteer Commitment Deposit, mandatory for all full members, to encourage volunteer contribution by our members.  The $50 deposit will be refunded at season end, to those members who have contributed at least 5 approved volunteer hours towards OMSC activities during the season.

Note: your OMSC membership fee is all-inclusive.
YMCA-YWCA membership is not an additional requirement.

Full Membership

The 2013-2014 season (Sep 09, 2013 through Jun 30, 2014) offers a great variety of swim sessions to suit any taste, including a combination of short course (25m) and long course (50m) sessions, and morning and evening sessions through the week and week-end. Full members are entitled to swim any number of sessions, i.e. as often as they like. Most swimmers settle into a pattern, which allows our coaches to provide continuity and consistency in the training program for individual members.

  • Full Season members who pay upfront for the full 10-month season receive the lowest cost ‘Early Bird’ seasonal fee: $689 for the full season which includes the $39 annual MSABC fee and the $50 Volunteer Commitment Deposit. This represents a $100 discount on the regular fee.
  • Full Season members who cut post-dated cheques (one per month, dated for the 1st of each month) for the full 10-month season receive the next lowest seasonal fee: $709 for the full season which includes the $39 annual MSABC fee and the $50 Volunteer Commitment Deposit. This represents an $80 discount on the regular fee.
  • Members who join during the season receive a pro-rated fee in accordance with the number of months remaining in the season, at $70 per month x n months plus the $39 annual MSABC fee plus the $50 Volunteer Commitment Deposit.  Preference will be given to full season applicants.

Distance Membership

Some OMSC members have a long commute to our home pool at the H2O Adventure & Fitness Centre, but would like to train with us up to once a week. To cater for the needs of members who reside far from the home pool, we’ve introduced a Distance Membership category on a trial basis and through application to the Registrar. For more details, download the 2013-2014 registration form and the swim member policies.

  • Distance members who join during the season receive a pro-rated fee in accordance with the number of months remaining in the season, at $42 per month x n month, plus the $39 annual MSABC fee. Preference will be given to full season applicants.
