It was an important first foray into racing, reminding the swimmers of the purpose of practice and providing a reference point for the rest of the season. This was the first heats-and-finals exposure for anyone in the club this year, and all four of our athletes went hard in the morning Pettifer has been on staff for multiple Canadian teams and coaching mentorship groups, but this is his first time as a national team head coach.
The Pan-Am team will be selected at Canadian Trials this spring from the top performing athletes not selected for the World Championships or World Juniors teams.

Pettifer is excited to make an impact with athletes that are near the world standard and looking to As a part of their carding, the athletes will get support from RaceTek for race video and data and receive provincial team attire. Samuel Pei and William MacDougall have been selected for the Swim BC Regional Prospects camp, which gives an opportunity for up-and-coming athletes to have exposure to a provincial or higher level camp.
The camp will take place at the end of November and will include technical, mental, and nutritional coaching.
Both Pei and MacDougall were selected for their long course performances last year.
Out of the province, Pei was ranked fourth overall in his age group, and MacDougall was Full credit to Phil Parkinson, who has kept Charlton firmly on the heels of Leeds, while Paul Lambert has ensured the early-season shambles at Norwich is a fading memory.
Huddersfield are busy trying to prove that you can win things with kidsand it will be interesting to see how well their young and inexperienced side lasts as the lengthy campaign wears on.

And who would write off Southampton, who started the season on minus 10 and failed to win for seven League One fixtures but have hit top form over recent months and the play-offs are now just nine points away. Brighton manager Gustavo Poyet still has a lot of work to do if he isn't to end up looking like a budin ingles. His tenure started with victory at Southampton but his team have lost five of their six league matches since and spend Christmas Day in the relegation zone.
There is plenty for Poyet to think about this Christmas Their situation is nowhere near as perilous as Stockport County, who are rock-bottom, nine points from safety and in administration.
They are so short of money that their bench is nowadays packed with youth-team players and they face losing their key assets in January. What's more they face losing their training ground. Going bust is a real possibility and they, more than any other Football League club, are in need of some festive charity.

The trio can all tuck into turkey at their leisure after recently receiving the heave ho. Supporters of quite a few Championship sides will spend Christmas mulling over how the first half of the season has been underwhelming. Ipswich have had a campaign to forget so far, while the appointment of Gordon Strachan at Middlesbrough has hardly revitalised their season.
Boro were one point off top when they sacked Gareth Southgate. They are now 20 behind Newcastle. Newcastle supporters might want a self-help book that helps them to come to terms with good news. After what seems like years of chaos, they are riding high in the Championship, while West Brom are also looking a strong candidate for an instant Premier League return.
I saw Nottingham Forest demolish Preston on Saturday and reckon they may well finish the season promoted. They have so many attacking options, a solid defence and in Billy Davies a manager who knows all about succeeding in the Championship. The lofty status of Cardiff and Swansea should ensure a happy Christmas in Wales while Leicester fans must surely be pleased to be sixth.
But I reckon Blackpool fans should rejoice as much as any other Championship supporters. In an era of largely bland managerial comments, boss Ian Holloway is always great value, with his steady stream of one-liners, mixed metaphors and convoluted analogies.

If his time at the club turned sour, he could always get a gig doing stand-up at the Winter Gardens. But it is not just his chat.Ant/Dec
His first season in charge has seen the Seasiders reach their highest league position since the early s and the former Bristol Rovers, QPR, Plymouth and Leicester boss has breathed new life into a club that reaches far into the past for a glimpse of its glory days.
Blackpool sit just three points off the play-off zone this Christmas, and for that I think their fans should be truly thankful.
