With the release of Swimming Natation Canada's new National Standards yesterday and their support document, I speak with Swimming Natation Canada's High Performance Director, Ken Radford about the need for the changes and some of the finer points. This one is a little bit longer, but definitly worth the listen... a MUST HEAR for all coaches, age group swimmers and their parents. Good info and explanations for Easterns/Western Championships and Canadian Age Group Championships.
My friends over at Swim Swam has also covered the changes to Canadian Standards. Their coverage can be found HERE.
