National Championships Approaching

As with virtually every season: February means Nationals is near. This season, with record numbers attending Eastern Canada Divisional Championships, we are set up for one of our biggest competitions ever. We have welcomed 3+ new clubs into the league this year, are more than excited to be able to get all the athletes in the same pool and see all of the talent that Canada’s Universities have to offer. 

This season, Nationals is in Vancouver, BC and is hosted by UBC at their very own aquatic centre. It will be taking place February 15-16.  If you are in town, please come down to watch or volunteer – we promise it will be worth the while!

Further updates on the schedule will be posted shortly. To stay up to date on everything Nationals, check out the facebook event: https://www.facebook.com/events/181554503043316/
