Killer Whales

Killer Whales Schedule 

Swimmers in the Killer Whales program have the opportunity to seek their amazing potential. Through the 3 levels of this program the swimmers build on their skills, build on their integrity, and put forth the effort and dedication to realize their potential. At this stage of the program swimmers are dedicated to fully realizing their potential through the enjoyment of challenge, overcoming adversity, academic excellence, and devotion to excellence in everything they do. The Killer Whales eat, sleep and dream excellence. The responsibility is to be determined and goal oriented as individuals, but more importantly strive to inspire the team and community at large. Swimmers in this level express their excellence through positive contributions anytime the opportunity presents its self. It is an honor to reach the Killer Whale level, and this is appreciated through inspirational conduct that brings out the best in the individual as well as the team. Swimmers in this group may go as far as to represent our region, province, and perhaps our country. Dream BIG and WALK TALL!
