PanAM Invitational Meet

The combination of a world-class competition pool and accessible qualification standards makes the Pan AM Invitational a great opportunity for the Legends to showcase a large travel team.

This meet will offer both fast racing for our more experienced swimmers as well as a good opportunity to experience team travel and out of province competition for our newer athletes.

We are encouraging all eligible 12 and over swimmers to participate in team travel but we understand Team travel may not be right for everyone.
