Fast Early Season Swimming from UVPCS at Bennett Cup

A small but mighty group of PCS swimmers raced the Bennett Cup last weekend in preparation for both the Canada West University Championships next week and the PCS Xmas Cracker December 7-9th. The start of season emphasis on kick fitness and skills showed promising early results.


Nanaimo Invitational

UVPCS went up to Nanaimo October 26th-27th for the first short course swim meet of the season, amongst all of the other Vancouver Island teams. Our 65 swimmers took up a good chunk of the 330 swimmers, and had some great swims all around. It served as an assessment for the early season, and showed some big improvements in our younger swimmers, with some great developments in skills and techniques being shown in the pool. Heats were swam mixed gender as a timed final, so there was some fast swimming in each heat.  


Cracker 17 Closed

Thank you to all of the Clubs who support the Xmas Cracker every year. The meet is now full and closed.

Looking forward to seeign all of you!

PCS Crew.
