NEW THIS YEAR! For the 2014-2015 season, OMSC has entered a partnership with the YMCA of Okanagan. Under this new arrangement, OMSC now offers two membership categories:

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

Full members are members of both the YMCA of Okanagan (at the H2O Adventure + Fitness Centre) and OMSC. Full members have access to all of the Y’s facilities and programs, in addition to OMSC’s swim program.

Full Membership

The 2014-15 season (Sept 22, 2014 through Jun 30, 2015) offers a great variety of swim sessions to suit any taste, including a combination of short course (25m) and long course (50m) sessions; morning and afternoon sessions; week-day and week-end sessions.  Generally, swimmers settle into a pattern, which allows our coaches to provide continuity and consistency in the training program for individual members.  Full members are also welcome to participate in the five stroke improvement clinics provided through-out the season.  Each clinic focuses on a different stroke, with an additional clinic offering an introduction to participating in swim meets.

NEW THIS YEAR! With an increased number of coaches on deck for most sessions, the coaching staff is able to customize the workouts – focusing on our members interests more fully – we have lanes that offer a different workout for the Recreational, Tri-Athlete or Competitive swimmer.

NEW THIS YEAR! Because of our partnership with the YMCA, Full Members of the OMSC are also Full Members of the H2O facility.  This offers complete access to the H2O facility – the recreational pool, the fitness facility and all the other amazing Y programs.  Please see the H2O web site for complete details.

Affiliate Membership

This membership category is for swimmers who are not able to join the OMSC / YMCA program at this time – either they live too far away or their work schedule does not allow it – however they choose to compete in sanctioned swim events as an OMSC member.  For more information, please contact the OMSC registrar at registrar@okmasters.com.

How do I register?

  1. Download the 2014-15 Registration Package.
  2. Bring the application forms to the front desk at the H2O and ask to join the OMSC / YMCA program.

If you are currently a member of the Y at H2O, the OMSC program is a small upgrade.  Registration fees includes the month by month YMCA membership fee – $76 + tax per month for adults or $65.25 + tax per month for Senior and Young Adult, and an annual OMSC/MSCBC membership fee ($50).  Standard YMCA cancellation and other fees are applied as determined by the YMCA.
