The Saskatoon Goldfins are set to compete in the upcoming 2018 Brainsport Winter Classic and in the 2018 Brainsport Development Swim Meets – February 9 – 11, 2018 – Shaw Centre, Saskatoon, SK.
The meet will be hosted in two parts; the Brainsport Winter Classic Swim Meet and the Brainsport Development Meet.
The Winter Classic swim meet format, will provide age group swimmers an opportunity to race in preliminary heats and finals sessions. This meet will demand that swimmers post a strong preliminary effort in hopes of competing in the evening’s finals session.
For many of our Goldfins, the Development Meet will serve as their first Long Course (50M pool) swim meet experience. These young swimmers will be competing in a number of challenging events over the course of the weekend.
The Winter Classic has 228 swimmers registered in the upcoming meet. There will be twelve Saskatchewan swim teams, as well as, two out of province teams vying to improve their times and rankings. The Development Meet will welcome 224 swimmers; represented by twelve swim clubs from across Saskatchewan.
“The Goldfins have been undergoing rigorous training during the month of January. Swimmers have been challenged physically and mentally honing their technique, their endurance. and their race tactics.” said, Head Coach, Paul Armstrong. “There will be over 130 Goldfins swimmers registered for the Brainsport Winter Classic and for the Brainsport Development swim meets. This number of swimmers has set a Club record for the number of swimmers registering for a swim meet."
The Saskatoon Goldfins wish to thank the meet’s major sponsor, Brainsport. The Goldfins simply cannot thank your company enough. We have been fortunate to work with the most amazing team of people who have helped us to bring this swim meet to life, so to all of the Brainsport staff who have played a part in this event, thank you.
