January Swimmers of the Month

January Swimmer of the Month


Coach's Note

This Sunday, despite the gloomy weather forecast, we had 20 of our development athletes attend the Guelph Skills and Thrills meet. With a great show of camaraderie we started out with a loud team cheer, and continued throughout the day with lots of cheering for our friends and teammates. We saw lots of personal bests and, even more exciting, athletes attempting new races for the first time - with everyone rising to the challenge. I am very proud of our athletes and can't wait to see what they do next!
