Hello Kigoos,

Please find attached the practice schedule for July/August. This schedule will begin on Monday, July 4th, and will run until Wednesday, August 3rd.

  • Please note – There will be no practices on Friday, July 1st (Canada Day), and Wednesday, July 13th (Kigoos JD Meet) *

You may notice that our practices are pushed back to start later in the evening in July, and that our practices have been moved from the evening to the afternoons on Fridays. This is to accommodate for public swimming at Steveston Pool. There is also one practice scheduled for each group at Watermania Pool. As always, there are a number of practice sessions scheduled for each group, and swimmers are encouraged to attend as much as they are able within their family schedule.

See you at the pool!
