Assessments are done on a drop in basis. You may stop by the pool between 4 and 7 pm and we will set you up with a coach who will do your child’s assessment.
Please be dressed for the weather as assessments will take place, rain or shine. The pool is heated but if the weather is cooler, please dress appropriately for before and after the swim.
You will be advised later on in the evening of May 1st if your child has been accepted into the Kigoos. Final group placements will happen once children have been swimming with children of the same age for the first week and a half of May.

For 20 years the Richmond Kigoos have offered a Masters swim program for Kigoos alumni, parents, or others in the community. The program is open to swimmers of all abilities.
The Masters Swim Program will be coached by Kigoos Senior A Coach Andre Kudaba this summer.
Practices start on Thursday, May 1st and runs every Tuesday and Thursday during swim season from 9 – 10 pm.
There are 2 options for Masters Swimmers:
- $50 registration/insurance fee for the season. Cash or cheque payable to Richmond Kigoos Swim Club (due at your first swim for the new season) and $5 swim fee for each session attended
- $100 which covers registration/insurance, three swim meets and Regionals swim meet. Cash or cheque payable to Richmond Kigoos Swim Club (due at your first swim for the new season) and $5 swim fee for each session attended
For parents registered in the new Parents Swim Program – they can “drop-in” to the evening sessions for the $5 swim fee.

This program is exclusively for parents of swimmers who register for the 2014 Summer Season. Allows parents to lane swim at Steveston Pool during any of the weekday morning practice times, as many times per week as desired. No coaching is provided – coaches will only be on deck as lifeguards and as the coaches for the children. One-time cost of $100, which includes BCSSA Registration fee, and a Kigoos t-shirt and swim cap. If registered for this program, swimmers are also eligible to swim in our Icebreaker Meet, and Regionals if qualified.
