CW at the Skills & Thrills
Guelph Fall Skills & Thrills - November 13, 2016
CW's newest competitors take to the pool!
Sunday November 13 was the date of the Skills and Thrills meet at the University of Guelph pool.
This meet was attended by 65 Club Warrior swimmers from our Novice Programs and the swimmers from
Age Group 1. The meet was the first competition of the year for these groups and for many it was
the first meet EVER! For our swimmers, they did an amazing job in their events and for our coaches
we saw what we need to work on in practice.
I would like to thank the coaches who did a great job marshaling or maybe better describe as “Herding”
our swimmers to their events. To say it was chaotic is a bit of an understatement. I felt like I was on
the floor at a sold out Rolling Stones concert.
There were a few of our new swimmers that were overwhelmed by the meet, mainly because of the number of
swimmers present. They came to warm up in tears...but by the end they were strong and eventually fearless
with big smiles on their faces. This experience will help make the next meet more enjoyable right from the
Speaking of Starts:
Some of the things that I think, collectively, we as parents” can start to do a better job of for next time;
The rest of the team will be competing at the Wilmot ACES meet this weekend (November 18) and the Novice-AG 1 groups
will be competing in Burlington at the beginning of December. Please remember “leave the Cheetos at home”!
Go Warriors Go!
