May Schedule and Summer 2023 Group Lists

Posted by Kigoos Swim Club at Apr 17, 2023 9:48AM PDT

Hello Kigoos Families!

We are so excited that the swim season is just two weeks away! Let’s hope this rain turns to sunshine on May 1st.

Attached you will find the practice schedule for May and the training group lists. All practices take place at Steveston Outdoor Pool rain or shine. Don’t worry, the pool is heated!

For practices you will see a dryland time and a pool time. Dryland is made up of exercises outside of the pool to warm up our swimmers before practice. Be sure your child comes prepared for dryland in exercise attire, ideally dressed in runners, shorts and a t-shirt (depending on weather they may want to wear sweatpants, leggings or a sweatshirt). In addition, please be sure to have a water bottle, towel, goggles, swim cap (encouraged for swimmers with longer hair) and a swim practice appropriate bathing suit for the water.

The training groups were carefully and purposely made up based on division, age and ability. As the swimmers practice in the first week or two there may be some small adjustments to group placement, and we will keep you updated if you child is affected by this.

If you have any questions about group placements or training schedule, please reach out to our Head Coach Megan at

Looking forward to seeing you VERY SOON at the pool!

Kigoos CIT Call-Out - Summer 2023

Posted by Kigoos Swim Club at Apr 16, 2023 11:37AM PDT

Hello Kigoos!

The Club is looking for swimmers in Division 4 and up who are interested in volunteering as Coaches-in-Training (CITs) for our Junior Development and Tater Tot programs this summer.

Working alongside our Coaches, CITs assist with dryland, help set up the pool, and are in the water to provide feedback to swimmers. This year, we are using a rotating schedule for our CITs and the commitment for each CIT is two to three 1.5 hour sessions per week. In May and June, the general timing of the practices is Monday to Friday, 3:30pm-5pm and in July it is Monday to Thursday, 4:45pm-6:15pm and Fridays 3:30pm-5pm.

This is a great opportunity for anyone interested in a paid coaching position in the future. Additionally, your volunteer hours may be used to fulfill school requirements for volunteer and/or work experience. The Club is also happy to provide letters of reference/recommendation for CITs who display a dedication to the role.

Interested swimmers should forward a resume to Coach Megan at

Depending on the response, we may not be able to accommodate all applicants. If you are an applicant who is selected, please ensure that you can commit to attending your assigned sessions throughout the summer.

Thank you!
Kigoos Coaches and Board of Directors

Welcome to Kigoos Summer 2023!

We are so excited to have your family joining the club this year. Please read below for some important information as our summer season approaches.

  • Registration is now closed, and we are excited that our summer program has sold out!
  • Save the date! On Friday, April 28 from 6-7pm we will be holding an important Parent Information Session about the season. This session is for all Kigoos families (new and existing) and will count for 1 hour of your parent volunteer time. Please plan for at least one parent from each family to attend. The session will be held at the Steveston Community Centre in the Multi-purpose Room. The information shared at this meeting will be helpful in understanding the summer season. Questions about swim meets, volunteer hours, training and more will be addressed.
  • Parent Participation Cheques of $500 should be received by April 30 to the mailbox at #10-4388 Moncton Street, Richmond, BC, V7E 6R9. Cheques will only be cashed if the required parent volunteer hours are not completed by the end of the season. Families can also plan to bring their cheque to the Parent Information Night on April 28!
  • Our coaches and board are hard at work finalizing the practice schedule and initial group placements. The schedule and initial group lists will be available and emailed to families soon, likely by mid-April. All practices in May are at Steveston Pool. All groups will have at least one practice time daily Monday to Friday, with some groups practicing twice a day and some groups additionally practicing on Saturday.
  • Practices will start on Monday, May 1st
  • Please Note – there is construction currently occurring for the new Steveston Library and Community Centre which is affecting parking. Please leave yourself extra time and/or have a plan for parking as there are fewer spots than normal.

We are looking forward to a fantastic season and can’t wait to see you at the pool soon!
