Westmount Dolphins Aquatic Club

The WDAC is a parent-volunteer driven summer aquatics program with close ties to the Sports & Recreation Dept. of the City of Westmount.

This program is for youth (7 to 17 years old) who would like to develop aquatics skills, compete at a ‘fun’ level and make lasting friendships. The program is focussed on the four aquatics disciplines: competitive swimming, diving, synchronized swimming and water-polo, and runs from June to mid-August. All the activities are based at the Westmount Recreation Centre (WRC) pool. For more information please consult the WDAC website at www.westmountdolphins.org.
