School Programs

This is the 19th season Tyee has run the Tyee Elementary School Swim League
(TESSL), in partnership with 10 Victoria area schools.
Schools are invited to register for a 6-10 week session for a 45min a week lesson. All
school groups are run at Crystal Pool from 3:30-4:15pm Monday - Friday. Schools can
work with our coordinator to select the best possible day for their students. We offer 3
sessions a season for schools to participate in; October - December, January - March, and
April - June.

There are 4 different levels within the school programs and they are used as an
introduction to the world of competitive swimming. If a swimmer wants to continuing
learning and expanding their swimming skills, they can transfer into our pre-competitive
programs running at 4:30pm Monday-Friday.
