Prospects West camp a learning experience for Inconnu swimmer Brittany Welsh

Welsh said the experience was a great one as it meant she fit in with the top swimmers from this part of the country.

“It was awesome. The top swimmers in Western Canada get to go at the top of their age group and swimming. I got picked because I was on the alternate list but three other people cancelled so I got to go.”

Instructors running the camp aimed for getting those taking part to hone in on the technical aspects of their swims. The camp was summarized as having an “evaluate/analyze/correct – race again” format.

“It’s a lot of technical work with focus on our stroke and how to improve it and how to get better in our races,” Welsh said. “It’s amazing. I love being able to go. It’s a big step up for me to be able to go to these kind of things.”

Welsh will now turn her attention to preparing to compete at the Swim B.C. Provincial Championships in June.
