Looking to join an LGBTQ2S+ sports team? Come join the Downtown Swim Club for some good ol' splashing fun followed by a social!
The Open House is a swim practice. For 1.5 hours, you can sample different coaches and workouts that we offer on a year round basis. It's informal - a workout will be assigned, but you complete what you can. The main idea is to come out, try it out and meet people.
Anyone can come, as long as you can confidently swim a few laps.

Social 8PM onward
University of Toronto Athletic Centre
55 Harbord Street

Be sure to click on Open House Option
After you get changed, come introduce yourself!
Arrive 20 minutes early so you have time to change, sign in, and socialize with current members of the club.
The Athletic Centre is a bit of a maze, so look for signs and arrows pointing to the change rooms. You can also ask the front desk where the Spadina change rooms are.
WHAT TO BRING
- Bathing suit
- Swim goggles
- Swim cap (optional, but good idea if you have long hair)
- Lock for the locker (you can also leave your stuff on deck)
AFTER PARTY SOCIAL - HALLOWEEN THEME
The few seconds (or minutes for some of us!) of rest between each lap is probably not enough for you to get to know anyone, so come out for drinks after practice! Chat with our members, get to know the team, and make some new friends!
The AFTER PARTY is BYOB. Details of location will be mentioned at the pool
