A special thank-you to Heather Stein for running Stroke and Turn clinics at Central Park last week. Heather was impressed with the turn-out and level of participation. All parents who completed the training with Heather or attended one of the BCSSA training clinics, are strongly encouraged to sign-up for shadowing shifts at our very own Development Meet and Grand Prix. Heather will be officiating at all three days at our meet and is available to answer questions and support or newly trained officials. A big thank-you to everyone for supporting the club and the greater swimming community in this way.
