2018 Maine Swimming Tour


Swim Nova Scotia is excited to once again offer a Developmental Provincial Tour Team opportunity for our registered year-round swimmers. This opportunity is available to all 11-12-year-old swimmers and those swimmers that are 13-15 that are not qualified for Nova Scotia Senior Provincial Championships. The intent of this Provincial initiative is to help build athlete independence, a cohesive team unit as Team Nova Scotia and to allow swimmers of all levels the opportunity to travel outside of Nova Scotia.

All swimmers will be required to travel with the team and to stay with the team throughout the entire event.  If parents/families would like to attend, they are more then welcome to make their own travel arrangements and accommodations at a different hotel.

The team will travel to Bath, Maine, USA on Thursday March 8th, train there that evening and on Friday March 9th.  The competition will take place on Saturday/Sunday March 10-11th; the team will return on Monday March 12th.  We will shop in the Freeport area on Friday March 9th.

The cost of the trip for the athletes will be $600.00 (includes transportation, accommodations, meet entry fees, out of country insurance, team attire (caps/shirts) and all team dinners). $100 non-refundable deposit and completed application form is due by January 12th, 2018.

Swim Nova Scotia is pleased to announce the staff for the Maine Swimming Tour Team:

  • Ian Cunningham (Halifax Trojan Aquatic Club) has been named as the Head Coach for Team Nova Scotia. Ian has been coaching in our Province for eight years; he has participated in several Provincial initiatives as a valued member of the Coaching staff as a Head and Assistant Coach.
