Hello Kigoos and Senior Whites!
As we all head home from Kamloops we reflect on an outstanding season and achievements. To all the swimmers, you showed not just the coaching staff, but the club, what hard work, determination, and persistence results in. We have set goals and we’ve achieved them and went to places with our potential that we never thought we were capable of doing at the beginning of the season. I can honestly say that all of the coaches are immensely proud of every swimmer. However, there is more work to be done. These skills that you have developed and new experiences you have learnt from over the summer should be transferable into the upcoming academic year; to not lose focus on your own personal goals, to never be afraid to get out of your comfort zone, to complete your journey to your fullest potential, and never being afraid to adapt your plan if your initial one doesn’t succeed. As I go back to Carleton, I too will keep with me lessons that I learnt this summer. I’ll remember each and every highlight of the Señor White group and everything we’ve accomplished individually and together. Such as getting my ankles crossed over at the beginning of the year, all the Raptor sprints and Canadian sprints, and the true understanding of 100% in and 100% out. And most importantly, to never forget to keep that little bit of savage in you. It is safe to say with a firm belief that the senior white members have developed to become great individual leaders. This was not luck. We said why not. And we truly did shock the world.
Best wishes to everyone and have a fantastic fall and winter season!
