In to week 6!
We just completed our first swim meet this past weekend and we are blown away with the results! Some kids were crushing their times, taking over 10 seconds off in some races! Nice work!
Didsbury Meet Re-cap
This is coach Ben here with your Didsbury meet re-cap! Our coho kids swam well and showed the region and province that we are serious competition. Hard work is already paying off for the kids. I know I speak for all coaches when I say we are impressed with the work in practice!
Current Team Rank (Provincially)- 2nd overall, for small team. Our kids score points for our team when they rank top 8 provincially in an event. We are in the "smaller team" category this year, and competing against other similar sized clubs for a trophy at provincials. (Full rankings here: http://assa.ca/web/
