Ahoy Matey! The Town of Oakville will host the 41st annual Novice Swim Meet on Tuesday, August 30 from 9 a.m. to noon at Brookdale Pool. With a pirate theme, swimmers aged four to 14 representing six different town pools will compete in a friendly “pool versus pool” competition for the championship!
“This meet is very popular with the community and is a fun event for families,” said Nina de Vaal, director of Recreation and Culture for the Town of Oakville. “Once again, we’re raising money for the Lifesaving Society’s Water Smart Campaign, which promotes water safety and teaches essential drowning prevention techniques.”
Participants are invited to take advantage of family-friendly games and activities in the park including an appearance by Buddy the Lifeguard Dog from the Lifesaving Society. Barbecued goodies and refreshments will be available with all proceeds to the Lifesaving Society’s Water Smart Program.
Note: You must already be a member of a “Novice Swim Team” at one of Oakville’s pools to participate in the swim meet.
