The Agassiz Harrison Aquanauts (AHA) summer swim club season has begun! Jordan Torok is back as the AHA coach accompanied by Sydney, his sister, who is coaching the younger swimmers. Summer swim season is short and swim meets start early in the season. After just two weeks of swimming, the first meet took place in Mission. For Brooke Coles, Josh and Olesia Loosdrecht, it was their first swim meet. Brooke who is just learning the different strokes did very well and even swam in two relay events. Randolf McInroy started off the season with speed in his 50 breaststroke winning a gold and 50 free winning a bronze. Both event times were within a second from provincial times. He won a 2nd place aggregate award for high points in his age group. Jayden Lees was also flying through the water and won a 2nd place aggregate award in her age group. In total 25 swimmers attended the meet and all had many personal best times in their swims.

A few weeks later AHA went to Haney for the second meet of the season. Everyone continued to take off time and improve their strokes techniques. Jordan and Sydney spent a lot of time encouraged AHA kids to work on faster flip turns and stronger underwater pull outs and kicking off the wall. When watching the AHA team in Haney, they consistently had some of the fastest flip turns, beating many other swimmers off the wall. There were some great personal breakthrough events at this meet. Anton Stoeckly came 1st in 50 free while also breaking the 30 second mark with a 29.70 second best time. In the same event, Philip Schwichtenberg finally broke his 40 second barrier with a 39.99 second time
