Kamloops will host the 2011 Western Canada Games from August 05-14, 2011. The Games are the first step in the high performance multi-sport Games continuum from the Provincial to inter-provincial level. The next step would be the Canada Games of 2013 to be held in Sherbrooke, Quebec.
The last Western Canada Gmes were held in Sherwood Park, Alberta and half of the swimmers who competed in those Games found themselves at the Canada Games held in P.E.I. in 2009.
The Games are for athletes 17&U (born in 1994 or later). There will be 8 female and 8 male able bodied swimmers chosen to compete. The selection criteria will be published in the fall of 2010.
Just to whet your appetite I have created a list of the top 10 swims in each event for swimmers born in 1994 or later from the 2009-2010 short course season.
These lists are for your information only. They in no way reflect any selection. They are just meant to give you an idea of who the competition might be for a spot on the team. If your name is not on the list, get to work and we'll look for you on the next ranking!
