The Liquid Lightning Swim Club is a program that encourages the achievement of personal and team goals in competitive swimming through training and competition.
The Club fosters an environment where all swimmers, regardless of ability, will learn the fundamentals of the sport of swimming that can take them to a regional, provincial, national, or even an international swim meet.
The Liquid Lightning Swim Club became an officially sanctioned swim club in July, 1994.
This came about after a group of parents saw the need for a swim club on the west side of Okanagan Lake.
These parents all had young people swimming competitively in the Central Okanagan , and saw the untapped potential amongst young people on the Westside.
The Johnson-Bentley Aquatic Centre was declared home and the Central Okanagan Liquid Lightning Swim Club Society was formed.
The Central Okanagan Liquid Lightning Swim Club Society is governed by the following:
a. the Society Act;
b. the Club’s Constitution; and
c. the Club’s By-laws.
The Liquid Lightning Swim Club subscribes to Swim BC ’s philosophy of being an athlete centered, coach driven, and administratively supported organization. It is a not-for-profit organization, and a member of Swim BC.
