Jason Chugh is joining the club from Edmonton, where he was assistant coach with the Edmonton Keyano swim club. He’s an NCCP Level 3-certified coach and has guided swimmers to provincial and national medals.

The Olympians are hosting a pair of registration sessions for the coming season at Matsqui Recreation Centre, on Wednesday Sept. 5 from 4-6 p.m. and Saturday Sept. 8 from 9 a.m. to noon. The program is open to swimmers age 5-17 who are able to swim 25 metres (one length of the pool) and are confident in deep water.
