The 2012/13 Kootenay Swim Club

Kootenay Swim Club has new plans for a new year

Upcoming AGM, 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, August 27 at the Nelson and District Community Complex a chance to learn more.

There have been many exciting developments for the Kootenay Swim Club this summer and they are ready to launch this September.

The club meets out of both the Nelson and Castlegar pools and swimmers are gearing up for another great year as the club marks its fourth regular season of competition and training.

Kootenay Swim Club swimmers attend meets about every six weeks during their season and have plenty of fun meeting new swimmers and travelling to new racing venues across B.C.

Chris Wright will be taking on the role of head coach for the 2013/2014 season and is focused on expanding the swim club to a level where Kootenay swimmers are recognized not only in B.C. but across Canada.

Chris’ 10 years of experience racing and training at the national level will provide the foundation for all swimmers to make this year unforgettable.

The club is pleased to announce a few new additions to its program. A list of highlights includes:

– A new eight-week sessional program aimed at giving youngsters a taste for competitive swimming. These sessions are focused on taking their skills to the next level when they are showcased at a mini-meet at the end of the session.

– Free try-outs every Monday in September at the Nelson pool. Come on down and enjoy a free one-hour coached session by Chris. We would love to see what talent is out there.

– Individual video analysis sessions and feedback from the head coach.

See you on deck!
