About the White Rapids
The Nanaimo White Rapids Swim Club is a non-profit, parent run, competitive summer swim club that has an intensive training season from May to mid- August. The swimmers are coached in the technical aspect of all four strokes, endurance, and swim meet procedures.
The club hires highly qualified and experienced coaches for the summer season (May - Aug), as well as during winter maintenance sessions through the offseason (Sept - Apr).
Swim meets are a large part of summer swimming and are scheduled around Vancouver Island and the Lower Mainland through June, July and early August. Swim meets are not mandatory for members of the White Rapids, but they are a great way for swimmers to see improvement and build friendships with teammates and swimmers from other clubs.
