Swimming

Junior Swim Team (2018-19)

St. George's Junior Swim Team is open to all boys who are interested in participating and have some swimming experience. The boys can start as early as Grade 3 or join in a later year. While participation is high (over 90 boys are expected this year!), the quality of swimmers is equally as high. Many of our boys are swimmers for their local club teams. We encourage our students to participate especially with year-round clubs to further develop their skills in the sport. Boys swimming with "year-round" clubs more than three times per week, may be exempted from some practices. Please indicate your schedule in the sign-up box. 

The team competes in monthly meets during the season, which runs through Terms 1 and 2. Most meets are open to all boys who have attended practices consistently. The ISEA Championships require a team to be selected. St. George's hosts the Annual JR Invitational Meet in the late fall, with approximately ten teams and over 300 swimmers. 

Past and current team members are Provincial and National medalists, Provincial record holders, Provincial Team members, and are nationally ranked. The JR team has won the ISEA Boys Championships for 20 consecutive years, setting the tone for the SR School Team, which has won the BC High School Aquatics Championships for the past 13 years.
