Speed swimming made it’s debut in Steinbach in 1990.  With only an outdoor pool, the season was limited, but interest in the sport grew with more and more swimmers becoming involved.  With the opening of the Steinbach Aquatic Centre’s new facility in 2002, the club was able to practice year-round, and in 2004 the Steinbach Skimmers Swim Club was officially formed.

Today, the Steinbach Skimmers have over 25 club members and continue to grow every year.  If you are interested in participating and becoming part of this exciting sport, please email us at steinbachskimmers@gmail.com.
