As much as summer is a well-loved season around here, the approaching fall and winter sports and recreation opportunities are as much loved by the locals as well.

There have been many exciting developments for the Kootenay Swim Club this summer and they are ready to launch this September. The swimmers are gearing up for another great year as the club marks its fourth regular season of competition and training. Kootenay swimmers attend meets about every six weeks during the season and make new friends while travelling to racing venues across BC and participating in training camps. The club is pleased to announce a few new additions to its programs that include a new eight-week seasonal program aimed at giving youngsters a taste for competitive swimming. The sessions are focused on taking their skills to the next level when they are showcased at a mini-meet at the end of the session. There are also free try-outs every Monday in September. Go to the pool and enjoy a free one-hour coached session by Chris. The club would love to see what talent is waiting out there. For more information email firstname.lastname@example.org or visit our website at thekootenayswimclub.com.
