This summer, nine Nelson swimmers continued to swim despite having no local pool. The swimmers attended daily practices in Castlegar and competed with the Castlegar Aquanauts.
All the kids swam very well this season. At the regional swim meet held on the August 3 and 4 weekend in Castlegar, five Nelson swimmers qualified for provincials which will be held this coming weekend in Coquitlam.
With the local pool now reopened, the Nelson Neptunes will be back up and running in September at the Nelson and District Community Complex. Swimmers from the age of six and up are welcome to join.
Watch for more information at the pool and their website nelsonneptunes.com.
