FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – Inconnu Swim Club members were put through the paces at a meet in Grande Prairie over the weekend.

The meet featured the older swimmers and was the first test of the season in long course events, something the kids are in the midst of getting accustomed to.

“The way that Swimming Canada has shifted their schedules is that we need to train for long course earlier in the year,” said head coach Steve Carson. “We need to start swimming and training for long course events sooner than later. The weekend was a trial run and gave the kids a chance to gain some experience and use the pool time to ready themselves for the bigger meets coming up.”

The kids are also in the middle of a gruelling training schedule for the busy part of the swimming season as winter turns to spring.

“I have been pushing them for the last five weeks or so,” added Carson. “They have been forewarned that I will be working them hard up until March 3rd to get them in long race shape.

Next up for the swimmers will be a home meet with Chetwynd competitors on February 17th and 18th.
