Thank you to all the family members who supported and encouraged the swimmers throughout the adventure and their journey.
2022 Summer Swim Season
The season started off strong with a clinic in Beausejour, the skills we practiced there were then put into use at swim meets!
The first of 5 meets started in Treherne with 52 participating athletes. Next up was Winkler with 84 participating athletes, followed by Manitou with 57 participating athletes and finally Neepawa with 79 participating athletes! Swan River had a clinic following Neepawa to get some Breaststroke and Butterfly practice.
This Sunday we will finish off the season with the championship meet in Beausejour!
This year Summer swim created a spirit award, adopting the True Sport principles to focus on the values that make our sport so great! Go for it, play fair, respect others, keep it fun, stay healthy, include everyone and give back are the principles that we are highlighting this year and in future years!
