3rd Annual Nanaimo White Rapids Splash and Dash Invitational

Posted by Nanaimo White Rapids Swim Club on Apr 08 2015 at 11:04PM PDT

The 3rd Annual Nanaimo White Rapids Splash and Dash Invitational is this Friday, April 10th. We are asking all White Rapid swimmer’s who are not participating with a local elementary school at the event, to meet outside the back doors of Beban Park Pool (doors closest to the deep end and the diving boards) between 2:30 and 2:40 pm – look for the White Rapids pop up tent. Please have your swim suit on, goggles in hand, and any gear you need for the transition area with you (shoes, shorts, shirt, and towel), as Coach Courtney and Coach Richard will be there to meet swimmers and mark down heat and lane numbers on their hand.

Swimmers will then be sent inside to receive instructions from Coach Byron and Coach Gareth before the Splash and Dash begins. The event will start shortly after 3:00pm and heats will run in the following order:

High School Girls and Boys
Tyke Girls
Tyke Boys
Peewee Girls
Peewee Boys
Bantam Girls
Bantam Boys

We are asking parents to stay out of the transition area at all times. There will be close to 315 athletes participating in the event, so it is imperative that the area is kept clear.

If you have any questions, please email Gareth Saunders at or Byron Trajan at
