Lockie Lister is an International Para Swimming official and is offering a domestic para swimming course for the Lower Mainland during the up coming Western National Championships.

The development of disabled swimmers is growing each year there are more swimmers in the Lower Mainland and in BC, so we are very fortunate to have this opportunity to learn from one of the best in the world.  Most of the Canadian Paralympic medals from London were earned in the pool so it is to our advantage on many levels to have as many officials in the province gain this important experience.

The clilnic will be held Wednesday February 12 from 4:00pm until 10:00pm. 

We will be in the conference rooms at the Canada Games Pool in New Westminster. Our course will follow the Technical meeting for Westerns so for those of you attending the tech meeting it will all be right there.

These clinics are normally held at IPC events so there are many benefits to those of you who have not had the opportunity to attend.. To further entice you it is free!!........ AND.......

YOU WILL BE FED! The fabulous kitchen team from Westerns will be there to make sure you are nourished through this extensive clinic.

Our out of Province guests officiating at Westerns are also more than welcome and encouraged to attend.

PLEASE RSVP to Heather Stein by Friday February 7 if you are interested in attending so that she can have the right amounts of materials available and enough food prepared.
Heather also welcomes any questions you may have, and will do the best she can to answer them as best she can.

SwimBC and the BCSOA extend their gratitude to Lockie Lister for making this fantastic opportunity available to our members; we look forward to benefiting from his expertise and experience.
