Photos with Santa – Coach’s Report

We had a small but mighty team swim in Calgary this past weekend. 5 Novice 1’s were attending the meet where they were able to take a photo with Santa and ask for best swims and fast times for Christmas, among many other things of course!

We had a lot of new swims that they did over the day. 100 FR and 50 BR were the two new events they swam. All swimmers entered in these events did amazing! Flip turns off all their walls and pull outs in their Breastroke races!

Kimiko came 5th in her 100FR
Greta was 3rd in her 100FR
Charlie and Zach had some great improvements in their swims, some fast personal bests!
Joanna who joined the club just over a month ago came to her first meet and did so well in her freestyle and backstroke races. Keep up that great swimming!

Well done swimmers, what a meet to end the year off. I can’t wait to see what the New Year brings! – Coach Alex

Distance and IM Challenge – Coach’s Report

We had a weekend of distance events this past weekend 800 FR, 400 IM, 200 BR. Some swimmers came in for only the 800m FR event and did an incredible job at it. For some it was their first time swimming the 800 and the efforts that they put into their training showed in their distance swim.

Kahlen and Carter both came 3rd in their age group
Jaime blew everyone out of the water coming 1st in her age group
Ruby taking a cool 34 seconds off her 800
Sydney S. participating in her first 800 as well.

Great job for pushing through those distances! We also had White and Novice swim this weekend. Some outstanding swims coming from everyone! Here are a few of their races:

Ian taking over 30 seconds off his 400FR
Ryder swimming his first longer distance events such as the 200 FR and BK
Andrew taking near a minute off his 400 FR (51 seconds faster)
Ani shaving off 48 seconds in her 400 FR
Chloe showing stamina in her races making her 200 BK 11 seconds faster
Sydney M making more best times in all her races
Anjah was making waves in her distance events, 33 seconds off her 200 FR
Amyryn did a pre-practice 400 on her own time and it showed in her actual race
Cale made his backstroke look so smooth making a personal best
Neiva our youngest swimmer at the meet swimming her first 100 FR, BR and BK
Rune pushing deep in her longer distances taking 13 seconds off her 400 FR
