Brantford Aquatic Club made a big splash at their 2019/2020 season opener in Oakville! Over 70 athletes from Brantford competed in the Brad Townsend Fall Classic swim meet which showcased some of Ontario’s most elite swimmers, as well as young up-and-comers, over the meet’s two days of competition.
“Our athletes have been hard at work since early September and it was great to get onto the blocks and race. We saw a lot of improved technique and skill execution, along with gritty racing. I’m very happy with the way our athletes competed today.” ~ Paul Armstrong, Head Coach Brantford Aquatic Club
