Other info: TBA as the meet approaches... This meet is a little bit different as it requires parents to be on hand for your boys, however during the meet they will certainly be busy racing throughout the day. Parents will be fully in charge of food and supervision for your boys for the day. Mr. Jones will be at the pool for the day to coach. You are encouraged to work with friends on the team or grade with supervision, snacks, lunches, etc. This is a very fun meet and the best competition pool in the province. Following the meet you are free to take advantage of the Victoria area or simply head home.
