Georgina Rapids making our debut at the first Masters competition @ the Etobicoke Olympium. Thanks for hosting and giving this great community of swimmers a chance to race again.
Incredible to see our swimmers pushing and breaking seeding times at their first in house time trial. This is just the beginning.
An event cannot happen without the incredible officials volunteering tonight for the club’s very first in-house time trial. Touched by the support of this small mighty community’s dedication to helping our young swimmers grow
Glad our swimmers made it out to our Friday morning practice, safe and sound. Hope everybody have a great Family Day weekend.
See you all next week!
