16-17 Swim (Snucins)

Slowly but surely, the newest program among the WolfPack family continues to grow,. Swimming, a varsity ‘club’ team is coached by Brad Dalke enters its third season of operation in 2016-17

Dalke is also the head coach of the Kamloops Classic Swim team.​

“The Kamloops Classic Swim Club is very excited about this program,” he says. “It supports our goals from our 2007 Strategic plan of developing a comprehensive swimming program which focused on developing children as swimmers throughout their public school years while competing at the regional, provincial and national levels. These athletes can now stay at home and compete as varsity athletes before moving onto the masters level.”

Dalke has been working with the City of Kamloops in accommodating more competitive swimmers training in the Canada Games Aquatic Centre. He has also been developing an organizational structure that will work with his current club system. “This will allow all athletes to achieve their maximum potential," he adds.

The team is captained by third year swimmer Jagdeesh Uppal (Kamloops, BC). Uppal has been an inspiration in and out of the pool and won the Dr. Roger H. Barnsley Scholar Male Athlete award in 2015-16.

Back for a second season is Taylor Carmicheal (Merritt, BC).

Recruits for 2016-17 are: Gabrielle Dagasso (5’6” free/butterfly, Kamloops, BC-St.Ann’s Academy/Kamloops Classics), Joelle Young (5’3”,breaststroke, Fort McMurray, AB-Father Patrick Mercredi High School/Young Aquatic Club)

Like all the coaches at TRU, Dalke has impressive credentials. He has been coaching competitive swimming since 1984 and is a former varsity swimmer who helped capture three CIS championships at the University of Calgary. He has been coaching in Kamloops since September 2003.
