Time trials results

Hi Team,

A big thank you to all who participated in our time trials. We had quite a number of nervous swimmers who were unsure about what was happening, one of the reasons why we do time trials is for kids to experience what happens at a Swim Meet and give them “competition” like atmosphere but among their team mates. We have a total of 8 time trials for the school year and the first one is always the challenging one.

Please find unofficial results here

Thank you parents for helping out time this event.

We would have not been able to do this without you. Please keep signing up 🙂

Brent Meet sign up form is open. Please check the right side of the Blog. Please also note the training requirement to be eligible for competitions. MS 2x a week training and HS 3x a week. Holidays are considered as a training day for the squad scheduled.
