The Aquaplex is ready to tackle another year de­spite pool ren­o­va­tions.

The Sports Recre­ation & Arts Expo on Septem­ber 13 al­lows youth to dis­cover new pas­sions like swim­ming. The Cana­dian Bad­lands Aquatic Club (CBAC) is set for another year of com­pet­i­tive swim­ming

“We’re just look­ing for new peo­ple that are in­ter­ested in join­ing” said Sheila Martin, CBAC coach. The pool hopes to be fully func­tion­ing by Oc­to­ber. CBAC of­fers coach­ing for the be­gin­ner swim­mer who is just get­ting their feet wet in com­pet­i­tive swim­ming, up to sea­soned swim­mers. The club has had swim­mers com­pete at the provin­cial level and be­yond. There are mem­bers of the club who also train in Air­drie.

“We’re hop­ing it will at­tract peo­ple and not scare them off, we don’t know ex­actly when the pool will be ready but we will be us­ing the out­door pool for sure for the month of Septem­ber and a lit­tle bit into Oc­to­ber.

Ac­cord­ing to its web­site, “the goal of CBAC is to of­fer age spe­cific train­ing for all of our ath­letes geared to­wards chal­leng­ing each in­di­vid­ual and de­vel­op­ing each in­di­vid­ual to the best of their abil­i­ties.”

Last sea­son Nathan Do­bell and Ava Har­ring­ton rep­re­sented CBAC at provin­cials, and Ava achieved cham­pi­onship times.
