Training, Technique & Skill Development Programs
To develop the aerobic capacity of consistent peak performers takes years and years; actually, it typically takes a decade. But to make gains, to improve within a single year there is only one way to do it – well, at least only one healthy way to do it – and that is by developing the skills and improving on the techniques specific to the sport. Since pool time is often a limiting factor, and because aerobic capacity can be built equally in or out of the pool, the optimal use of in-pool time is in refining the art and science of swimming. The result of this focus in training: Provincial Masters Swimming Champions, Provincial Masters Swimming Records, National Masters Open Water Champions, and countless podiums at Open Water Swim, Multisport (e.g. Aquathlon) and Triathlon events (see ‘Results’ webpages from main menu).
TOETT partners with TOEST (The Olympian Experience Swim Team) and jTOEST (Juniors team) for all swimming programs. Programs are designed for all levels of swimmers, open water swimmers and triathletes, from novice to competitive, for juniors (jTOEST ages 6-17) and masters (TOEST ages 18+) athletes.

Open Water Swimming for Junior Masters
The open water swimming [OWS] events calendar seems to be growing each and every year, and events are allowing younger and younger athletes to compete. To encourage our juniors masters to explore open water swimming (and multisport events such as aquathlons & triathlons where swimming is typically in open water) TOETT has acquired a small inventory of youth sized and small to medium adult sized wetsuits for use in these events. With junior athletes growing quickly, its a big ask for parents to invest in wetsuits so we want to make the sport that much more accessible.
