Skyeler Kerr and Brittany Welsh off to Saskatoon prospects camp


Welsh says this is her second time attending the prospects camp as she did so early on this year. 

“It’s pretty hard. The top swimmers in B.C. are going to train together and see our strengths and weaknesses,” she says. “I’m looking to improve more on my weaker strokes and to hear from the guest speakers there and get to learn more. 

The camp will also consist of a small swim meet on one of the days with Welsh competing in the 100 metre backstroke and the 50 metre breaststroke.

Kerr meanwhile has been at the event a couple of times in the past and says it provides a good opportunity to see how your skills compared to other swimmers from the western part of the country.

“This is my third time attending this camp. It’s a hard weekend but you can see how hard all of your competitors across the western side of the country are training. It’s a good way of seeing where everybody is at in the season. It gives you a good opportunity to scope out the competition.”

Other members of the Inconnu Swim Club will be in Prince George tomorrow competing in a swim meet over the weekend.
