Devin has been chosen because he is always ready to work hard and always has a smile on his face! He is a...

The Academy swimmers have had their Distance week, Nov. 19 - 24. They have swam a total of 10 workouts (every morning, 6 - 7:30am and every afternoon) and more than 50km. Their top distance was 8km in Wednesday afternoon's 20 x 400 workout. Although they are tired, they have never whined and have always been keen to swim whatever the workout says. They have been willing to push themselves beyond their comfort zone. On Day 4, Workout #8, Jaxon (who just started swimming this season) swam an A time...

Great job KISU at the Vernon Meet. The meet started out on teh Friday night with 50 Back and Breast . . . and then the 800.

Saturday finals were very exciting. Ashley McMillan had a great 100 Fly in the morning with a 1:46, which put her in third place going into the evening finals. Ashley is quite the...

The next goal after sub-4 is to make your first "A" Time standard. The time standards are put out by Swim BC and are created as entry level points for the AA and AAA Provincial Championships.

The Kamloops Meet is our first Championship meet of the season with three full days of heats and finals. Clubs from the...
