Barrie Trojan Cup Team Selection

Dave Ling

On December 4-5 we have a racing opportunity to visit the Barrie Trojans Swim Club for their annual Trojan Cup meet.  In addition to our club and the Barrie Trojans, the Orangeville Otters will send a squad as well.

The facility in Barrie has finalized capacity limits that they are allowing the swim club to invite to their meet.  As a result we have been invited to bring 25 swimmers aged 13 & over and 40 swimmers aged 12 & under.  This creates a complication that we can not bring everyone in the club to this particular meet, which is not our preference but racing opportunities like this have been tough to come by so this is an opportunity we have elected to take.  We fully realize this will make some unhappy that they have not been selected but the coaching staff has used an objective criteria that is a core value of the development of this team.  Please also realize this is only a first meet opportunity and we will strive for as balanced a participation schedule we can achieve over the balance of upcoming meets if faced with a similar restriction.

Available here is team roster as agreed upon by the coaching staff.

Session times are indicated on the attachment.  The timing of the sessions mean that our regular practice schedule will not have to be interrupted.

If your swimmer can not attend this meet please let your Newmarket Stingrays group coach know as early as possible so we can invite in another swimmer and hopefully we can utilize all the spots we have available to us.

If anyone has any addtional questions about this meet or the selection criteria please do not hesitate to inquire.
