Week at A Glance July 26th
What a week! From the biathlon, to the Grouse Grind, to all the practices in between, our swimmers and coaches have been training hard. As a result of all this hard work, we had another great weekend at the North Delta meet, with lots of Kigoos making finals. The days started early (Hello 5:45am warm-ups), and ran long, so apologies for the week-at-a-glance a day late.
We are less than 2 weeks away from our Regional Championships, and it’s hard to believe that we are quickly nearing the end of the Summer 2022 season. Our swimmers have been working so hard in the pool, that we have arranged a special event to round out the end of the hard training weeks. Canadian Olympic open water swimmer Hau-Li Fan will be coming to Steveston Pool on Friday, July 29th to run an endurance clinic with our swimmers. Sessions will be running as follows:
SR Swimmers – 12:45-2:30pm
INT Swimmers – 2:15-4pm
JR Swimmers – 3:45-5:20pm (JD’s are welcome to attend the JR session)
Please see the attached information page about Hau-Li and the Endurance Clinics. Thank you to Coach Mike for organizing this exciting opportunity for our swimmers.
This is the last week of our July schedule. Our August schedule is attached, and will start on Tuesday, August 2nd. There will be no practices on Monday, August 1st due to the Civic Holiday. Practices will run for all swimmers until Friday, August 5th. After regionals, practices will be only for our provincial qualifiers, starting on Tuesday, August 9th.
Kigoos Pasta Dinner
All swimmers are invited to enjoy our Kigoos Traditional Pre-Regionals Pasta Dinner after their group practice on August 4th. More information will be sent out next week.
Kigoos Regional Pancake Breakfast
Traditionally, our club has hosted a fundraising pancake breakfast on the Saturday and Sunday morning of Regionals for our families. Our club has been given a number of Regional meet responsibilities this year, and our club executive will be unable to put on this event without help. We are looking for volunteers to take on the organization of this event, perhaps someone who has run it or organized it in the past. Please send an email to email@example.com if you are interested in helping out.
Save the Date – Kigoos Wrap-up Party – Wednesday, August 10th – More information to come!
Surrey Sea Lions Meet – July 30th and 31st – Information about warm-ups, tenting, etc, will be sent out later this week.
Have a wonderful week! See you at the pool!
