Congratulations to our Swimmers of the Month!


Novice – Keegan G

Swimmer of the month for the novice group goes to Keegan G. Keegan has always come to practice with a smile and is always looking forward for what he may learn in the pool. Keegan is an excellent student to have he always like to double and triple check to ensure that he and other swimmers understand what is happening throughout the practice. Keegan always comes prepared to train and is always early to the pool. Keegan is an excellent role model and athlete in our group and we are glad to have him help lead the way to success. 


Junior – Allison R

JR Swimmer of the Month for February goes to Allison Ring. Allison has improved a ton this year – in all four strokes! She no longer only loves breaststroke and has totally changed her approach to swim practices. She got under 4:00 in the 200m IM for the first time, way to go!


AG1 – Zahra A

Swimmer of the month for AG1 goes to Zahra A. Zarha has done an excellent job during the challenging practices in February. Zahra also competed in the Williams lake blue fins swim meet and placed first overall in points for her age category. During practice, Zahra has always faced challenges head on and always tries her best to improve on skills that we are always working on.

Zahra is an excellent teammate for our group and continually shows she wants to improve.
