#SCMS15 for Masters Swimmers and Triatheltes

Many of my colleagues here in Montréal, as well as those who live beyond that have participated in many of the SenseLab‘s research-creation events, know that I am actively involved with Masters swimming. On top of being a postdoctoral research fellow at the Université de Montréal, I also am the head coach of the Westmount YMCA Swim Club. As an advocate for the sport of swimming, I would like to pass on some information to the many researchers and artists coming to Montreal this week to attend the Society of Cinema and Media Studies annual conference (#SCMS15).

If you are visiting Montréal for the conference and are also a Masters swimmer or a triathlete who would like to get in a good swimming workout, there are two swim clubs that are a short bus ride from the conference site.

The first is my team, the Westmount YMCA Swim Club. We train at the Westmount YMCA,  4585 Sherbrooke Street West, every Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 6:20am-7:35am and 8:15am-9:30am; and Tuesday, Thursday and Friday at 7:30pm-9:00pm. Buses 24, 104 and 138 stop near the pool.

If you want to come or need more information please email me at troy [dot] rhoades [at] gmail [dot] com or consult the team’s website.

The second team is À Contre-Courant. They train out of the Cégep du Vieux-Montréal, located at 255 Ontario St. East. Consult their website for their training schedule. Please contact them before arriving because I am not exactly sure what their policy is for visiting swimmers.

Happy conferencing and swimming!
