Senior (SR) / Junior (JR)

Head Coach - Fisiha Kebede

Acceptance into this program is determined by the head coach. Swimmers are working towards, or at, Provincial and National levels.  Membership in this group is based on performance potential and attendance. Event specialties will determine differences in program structure, e.g. sprint vs distance talent.  Swimmers at this level are expected to take personal responsibility for balancing their swim and school life. The swimmer should be the primary correspondent with the head coach regarding swimming goals and training.
