CBAC ends season at Stettler meet


The Canadian Badlands Aquatic Club wrapped up its season with a great result at a Stettler Swim Meet.
Coach Morgan Syvertson said it was the perfect end to a season after missing out last year due to COVID. The Stettler Swim Meet hosted swimmers from the Stettler Tsunamis, the Rocky Barracuda Swim Club, and the Sylvan Lake Nauticals Swim Club on April 24.
“It was a Swim Alberta sanctioned meet, and there were four clubs there which was really nice,” said Syvertsen. “Right off the bat, in the first event, one of our kids won, and that set the pace for almost the whole meet.”
“They didn’t win everything, but they won enough that it was really reading for the little band of coaches watching.”
What made the meet special is the whole club was on hand. Syvertsen explains, typically the heats are divided into junior circuit meets for the younger swimmers, and then regular circuit meets for the older kids. This meet included all the swimmers.
“We had our six-year-olds swimming, and also our 17-year-olds swimming, which was really nice… especially when you all get together like this, and everyone is cheering and screaming,” said Syvertsen.
The team had strong registration this season, with about 32 swimmers. Looking forward to the coming season, with a few coaches heading back to University, they are working on recruiting a few new coaches for the coming season.
“It was a really good year, a lot of our older swimmers made really good improvements,” said Syvertsen.
