For those interested in the Richmond BC Kigoos Summer Swim Club

Kigoos Water Polo Program

August 27th, 2014 | Posted by kigooswm in Registration | water polo - (Comments Off on Kigoos Water Polo Program)
The Richmond Kigoos are committed to re-starting a water polo program.  This will include a winter Tsunami program that will run after schools twice a week at Watermania.
We know for many of our swimmers water polo is a brand new sport and before swimmers have to make a commitment for Tsunami Water Polo we want to offer 4 free Saturday training sessions.
Our current thinking is to try to run a U11 and U13 program next summer and align our winter programs to prepare for this.
September Water Polo Sessions:
For U11 players (those born in 2004, 2005 and 2006) it will be from 2 – 3 pm
For U13 Players (those born in 2002 and 2003) it will be from 3 – 4 pm
Note – water polo uses December 31st as the age cut-off like school and does not use the summer swimming age groups.
Also – these sessions in September are only open to current Kigoos’ swimmers.
While these sessions are free, we need to have pre-registration.
The September sessions are at Steveston Pool on the 6th, 13th, 20th and 27th.
All sessions will be led by Coach Andre and other water polo coaches.
Please register for the September water polo program HERE.
Please register no later than September 3rd – we want to be sure we have sufficient interest to run the program.
If you would like to register and you are too young or too old for these sessions please complete the form anyway so we can see what other interest we have and depending on numbers may also be able to include you in the sessions.
More information on the Tsuami program will follow shortly.

Tater Tots Summer Swim Program

May 25th, 2014 | Posted by kigooswm in Notifier | Registration - (Comments Off on Tater Tots Summer Swim Program)

What to expect:


This seven week intensive swim program is designed for young swimmers to learn and build on the fundamentals of swimming. While this program aims to help younger children be more comfortable in the water, and to establish the key fundamental skills in swimming that are necessary to improve quickly, this program is not meant as direct stepping stone into our Junior Development program and should not be treated as such.


Preference will be given to younger siblings of Kigoos families as well as Kigoos Alumni on a first come, first serve basis. All swimming will be done in the small teaching pool at Steveston Outdoor Pool.


Due to limited pool space we only have room for a total of 18 swimmers. Each session is 30 minutes long and your swimmer will be assigned either the first or second half hour of the stated times and will be notified once registration is complete. The cost of the program is $100 and includes a Kigoos t-shirt




MondayWednesdayFriday from June 16th until July 30th (no sessions on Wednesday, July 9th or 23rd).  There are a total of 18 sessions.  Each session will be 30 minutes.  The program runs from 5 – 6 pm and swimmers will be assigned to the first or second half hour.


Please note:


Swimmers are expected to be on deck and ready to swim at the posted time. They should have goggles and a swim suit. Parents must be on deck for the duration of the practice to care for their child if needed.


The deadline for registration is Monday, June 9th (or until the program sells out)


For more information contact Coach Ava by email at  Click HERE to register.  Participants will be notified which timeslot they are assigned to no later than the end of the day on June 11th.

Registration Update

April 14th, 2014 | Posted by kigooswm in Registration - (Comments Off on Registration Update)
We have just passed the 170 mark with registrations for this summer.  We will likely be in a wait-list position at some levels shortly.  If you haven’t signed up for this summer, please do so this week to ensure a spot.  Also encourage any friends looking at Kigoos to apply this week.  We are actively looking to increase our swimmers in the higher divisions, so if your sons or daughters know of any high school aged students looking to swim this summer – encourage them to register with Kigoos.

All Registration Information is available under the Registration Tab.
