According to Sooke Leach Coach Frank Comerford, the Sooke swim team had a very successful 2013-14 season.
“Two of our swimmers qualified and swam at the Vancouver Island Regional Long Course (50M pool) Championships in June,” he summarized. “This season we are looking to get many more swimmers at this level of competition and at the higher provincial level championships.”
Sooke’s Island Swimming team is getting ready to start their 2014-15 swim year. The season begins on Monday, September 15, and registration is now open online (islandswimming.com). There will be an in-person registration at SEAPARC as well, on September 7 from 1-2:30 p.m.

According to their website, they “promote swimming as a long-term development and life long skill. Island Swimming continues to be top producers of Provincial, National and International level athletes. We are proud of our commitment to excellence and welcome you to try our exciting program.”
