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 fourth season of operation in 2017-18.

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 master’s 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 continues to grow. Dalke’s recruiting has brought in talent from not only Northern and Central Alberta but also the Lower Mainland. He has a strong contingent of local swimmers who have worked with him over the years with the Classics.

The team is led by a strong female squad anchored by two swimmers from Fort McMurray, Alberta: Joelle Young and Breena Russnel.
