Swim club starts new season

Are you or your child born to be in the water? Are you looking for a challenge, or hoping to learn new swimming skills? Then the Agassiz Harrison Aquanauts want to meet you.

The local swim club is open to swimmers of all levels, from those who have never swam, to those who have years of experience.

Whole families are welcome to join the club, which meets competitive and non-competivitely depending on the needs and wants of each swimmer. There are six swim meets scheduled over the course of the summer throughout the Fraser Valley. Each swimmer can decide how many meets to participate in, including the Kristy Hatt Memorial, to be held June 18 to 19 this year in Agassiz.

The group trains May through mid-August, Monday through Friday, at the Ferny Coombe pool in Agassiz.

The club also has a development program for those who are under the age of six and have shown ability in swimming lessons. The only requirement for swimmers is that they are comfortable in the water.
