SwimBC will be running a pair of camps on the weekend of November 25-27, 2016 (locations to be confirmed) for swimmers born in 2002-2003 (girls) or 2001-2002 (boys). This falls within the age catchment for Canada Games, and thus, will serve as an educational opportunity as well as training opportunity for the athletes.
For the first time, we will be dividing the camps by gender with the girls having a camp that will be "girls only", staffed by women coaches, and with all presenters and speakers being women.
The camps will be in separate locations as well.
Approximately forty swimmers will be invited to the camps (20 girls and 20 boys). In an effort to stress the importance of multi-event capability at this stage of athletic development, the selections have been based on cumulative Canadian ranking across three Olympic events.
