New Youth-Junior Team Initiative

Swim BC is happy to announce that we will be sending a 20 member team to the Tucson Ford Dealers Invitational, June 06-11, 2012. The selection will be 10 male and female swimmers born in 1994 and later, as well as two coaches.

This initiative is targeted toward 2013 Canada Games age swimmers. The objective is to have a selection meet from Olympic or World Championship Trials every year so that swimmers get used to swimming for a team every year going forward through 2016.

Swimmers who do not make the National Development Team’s Mare Nostrum tour in Europe can be picked up here.

This meet will provide an extra long course competition, which, along with the summer meets, will serve as a selection opportunity for the Fall National Development Team activities.
