All- Stars Oregon All Star Team We'd like to thank the many athletes who submitted applications for the All Star Team, and send our congratulations to those selected for this year's team! The team roster is listed below; one alternate has been selected for each age group in the event one of the selected athletes is not able to attend the meet. With 63 applications for the 32 available spots the selection process was competitive.
Our coaching staff took into account a number of factors, including but not limited to Our team finished 3rd overall with points with the boys finishing second with and the girls finished third with Our swimmers were super supportive of each other and that helped turn in over 70 best times, two team records by Hazel Derr Back: A big shout out to all the parents who were willing to brave the insane Friday traffic for their kids to be at this meet!
We had some amazing swims and kids trying new things in a race situation that they weren't quite ready to try at a meet with officials.
The atmosphere was fun and we had kids making new friends and cheering on their teammates! There were some technical difficulties which cause a swimmer to have to swim their event twice, but We had a great time and the kids were laughing, smiling and playing games on the trip.
In the pool the racing was great coming so quickly after Fall- In and the first week for many of high school swimming. The Canby swim teams 37th annual Animal meet was an amazing opportunity for swimmers to challenge themselves in difficult events not usually offered on the same day.
From cool participation animal T-shirts, too cool necklaces and Dragon trophies. Canby swim team worked hard to put on a great meet, and I hope we can bring more swimmers next year. A LTAD Strategy review was also completed in this timeframe to ensure that it supported and enhanced the recommendations that would arise from the new Swim Ontario Provincial Competitive structure and at the same time align with Swim Ontario Vision The competitions program key priorities were first reviewed in April by the SDC.

William and Mary Women Add 9 for Season
A LTAD Strategy review was also completed in this timeframe to ensure that it supported and enhanced the recommendations that would arise from the new Swim Ontario Provincial Competitive structure. In December the SDC approved the Provincial Competition recommendations and the corresponding standards were then reviewed and created. The standards also had to be adjusted to compensate for lack of depth of the data in some age categories including events with minimal performance history and new age categories within the younger age groups.
To address the different rates of growth which occur between males and females, the Swim Ontario Junior Provincial competition has differentiated age categories between genders.
To better address the physiological capabilities and needs of our athletes at each phase of their development, there is a differentiation in what events are offered to each age category. To reduce the physiological age disparity that 2 year age increments bring, and to provide a fairer playing field for all, single year age increments have been introduced at Junior Provincials for all Girls 14 yrs of age and under and all Boys 15 yrs of age and under.
Because scientific research indicates that athletes lock in their skills during the first three to four years of swimming, the emphasis should not be on how fast you swim but how well you swim. Skill development is far more important than winning! Sports physiologists have discovered that age group swimmers are pre-disposed to aerobic training, and derive far greater benefits long term by developing their aerobic capacities as opposed to their anaerobic capacities; an Aerobic oriented pre-requisite event has been introduced at Junior Provincials.
For tracking purposes, clubs are encouraged to run Sanctioned Time Trials in the and Freestyle for all their age group swimmers.2017 Far Western short course 400 Medley Relay final
