Coach's Corner

This past weekend we competed in the Audi Midtown meet held at the Toronto Pan Am pool on the big stage. Our swimmers came ready to compete as they have been working hard in practice to prepare for an opportunity to achieve their qualifying times needed for the upcoming Championship meets in February. Even a snowstorm couldn't stop our brave swimmers from the chance to succeed! I would also like to give a big congratulations to our Into Competitive swimmers who participated in this meet as well. This was a big meet with top competition and busy on the deck with two pools running at the same time. I am a very proud coach as each swimmer came prepared, swam confidently and showed their passion for swimming with a result of positive attitudes, outstanding support of team mates and smiles of success. This meet is a huge difference from the development meets. Amazing job to all our swimmer and let's keep the amazing swimming and cheering going!

Thank you,
Shannon Cunningham
Age Group Coach
Squad 1 & 2
