Coaches Editorial - this is usually a great meet for our swimmers. It is the almost last chance to make an A time to qualify for Kamloops. In the past, we have had large numbers of KISU swimmers at this meet and have won it in 2015 and 2016. Unfortunately, it conflicts with High School Provincials again this year, but everyone not going to High School Provincials should be at Kelowna. You can sign up for only one day if you want.

Kamloops Team Travel: December 13-16th Registration Deadline Nov 15th
KISU is encouraging all of our swimmers who qualify for the Kamloops Ice Classic to participate in Team Travel! Team Travel is a great experience for ALL swimmers. It is a great way for kids to get to know each other better, practice independence (while under the care of a chaperone and coaches) and come together as a TEAM. Once experienced, it speaks for itself!
Cost is will be determined once we know numbers (approx $250 per swimmer). Includes travel, accommodation, food and fun! We will be travelling via bus, leaving on Thursday after school and returning Sunday after the meet. Meals are provided (chaperones will be cooking up a frenzy!), and we will be staying at a hotel-The Best Western.
Swimmers in grade 5 or younger will need to travel with and bunk with a parent.
Swimmers going on "full" team travel (ie: travel both directions, and all nights with the team) will have first priority. Swimmers who are wanting to travel one way and stay only one or two nights will be accommodated whenever possible.
Parents who wish to accompany the team as chaperones are encouraged to contact Jacki Kliever (email@example.com).
PLEASE SIGN UP NO LATER THAN Wednesday, Nov. 15 - WE NEED TO KNOW OUR NUMBERS.
