Swim team members attend training camp
SUBMITTED From left to right are Jakob Loewen, Esmee Rosati, Hayley French and Blythe Wieclawek. The four Channel Cat members attended a provincial fundamentals swim camp in December.
Four members of the Orillia Channel Cats Swim Club participated in a training camp held in conjunction with the Ontario Junior International Championships at the Scarborough Pan Am Centre. Swimmers 12 years old or younger who achieved two of the qualifying times were invited to attend. Jakob Loewen, Hayley French, Esmee Rosati and Blythe Wieclawek learned from some of the top coaches in Ontario.
All of the swimmers took away some new skills and conditioning exercises they will share with their club.
“I liked meeting some of the coaches, and hearing their detailed advice on the various strokes ... I enjoyed the backstroke session the most,” said Loewen.
“At the camp, I got a lot of different input from other coaches, it was really fun and I learned lots,” said Wieclawek.
