Summer 2024 Programs

This Summer, the Titans will offer a mix of free sessions, structured practices (Swim & Play I, Swim & Play II, I Love Water Polo, Academy and 17U/19U Competitive), the Summer Recreational League at Carleton University, a Titans Day Camp and a Titans Evening Camp.

All registrations will be done via the RAMP system.

Training spots are limited. If demand exceeds our planned capacity, we will try and grow a program’s capacity by assigning additional coaches. RAMP will offer you to be added to the waitlist once a program has reached capacity. There is no cost to be added to the waitlist, so do add your name as additional training spots will be awarded in the order in which individuals were added to the waitlist. Better yet, avoid any disappointment and register ASAP for the Summer Programs!

All Summer program fees have been set to reflect that most individuals will miss about 30% of their practices/games because of Summer vacations.

Below is a description of the different program options for this Summer.
