The Prospects West Training Camp and Tri-Meet will take place April 14-17, 2011 in Lethbridge, Alberta. 32 swimmers aged 13 and 14 will take part, 8 swimmers from each age and gender. Age will be as of March 03, 2011.
This initiative has been in place since 2004, beginning as the B.C. – Alberta dual meet. Since then the format has been expanded and a team of 32 Manitoba and Saskatchewan swimmers was added last year. Due to the number of swimmers we will again run split gender activities some of the time to accommodate everyone. Dave Johnson from the Cascade Swim Club in Calgary will once again be the mentor coach. This year the camp has added a Thursday session as well as an extra session on Friday morning.
Team B.C. will fly to Calgary on the morning of April 14, then take a bus to Lethbridge. The camp will begin that afternoon. The return will see Team B.C back into Vancouver around 5:30 P.M.
The selection meets will be Western Canadian Championships in Kamloops, February 17-20 and the T.A.S. AAA Championships in Victoria, March 03-06.
