The swimmers are Ryan Cochrane (2008 Olympic bronze medalist), Julia Wilkinson (double bronze medalist at the 2010 Commonwealth Games), Stephanie Horner and Alexa Komarnycky. All 4 of these swimmers were members of the 2008 Canadian Olympic Team, and have their sights set on London 2012. This Saturday Coach Bennett and his swimmers have very kindly agreed to run a 90 minute training session/clinic for all Age Group Blue swimmers and above from 10-11:30am. From 8:30-9:30am there will be breakfast snacks available for those who wish to watch the end of Coach Bennett's workout with his swimmers before the 10am training session, as well as for those concluding their workout at 9am. This is a great opportunity for you to witness truly world-class training "live and up-close."

DR PAUL HAUCH INVITATIONAL
Our 34th Annual Dr. Paul Hauch Invitational Swim Meet is fast approaching! We need your help. This is our final event and a great end to the swim season. It is meant to be just a lot of fun!
In that regard, we are asking swim families to donate prizes that will be given out to the heat winner of randomly selected “bell” heats throughout the weekend. Swimmers get excited when they hear a bell ring just before their heat and try really hard to win so they can get a prize. Popular items that have been donated in the past are: towels, gift cards, beach toys, toiletries, tote bags, water bottles, games, caps, t-shirts; etc. Gifts should be worth between $5 and $10 each.
Families in Development and Orange should give their items to the coaches; families in Blue, Gold, Y, YN and HP can give them directly to me anytime at the pool. Please have your items in as soon as possible and no later than June 24 to allow me time to sort and organize.
Thank you so much for helping make this the best swim meet of the season!
