Some exciting news to get the season going. Caleb Near has recently been awarded The Dan Taylor Team Aquatic Supplies Arena Regional Student Athlete Scholarship. Congratulations to Caleb for demonstrating what hard work and dedication in school and swimming can offer!
The Dan Taylor Team Aquatic Supplies Arena Regional Studente Athlete Scholarship commemorates Dan Taylor in recognition of his 40 year commitment to the sport of swimming in Ontario. Dan firmly believed that “it takes a region” to raise a child and poured his heart and soul into supporting the North East Region swimming community as a volunteer coach, official, club administrator, Regional Chair and Swim Ontario Board member. Recipients of this scholarship reflect Dan Taylor’s strong belief that the sport of swimming builds good habits, confidence and discipline, makes youth into community leaders and teaches them how to strive for a goal, handle mistakes, and cherish growth opportunities both in the pool and in life.
Team Aquatic Supplies (TAS) and Arena collaborating with Swim Ontario will provide a total of twelve scholarships valued at $500.00 each. These scholarships will be awarded to the top qualifying male and female high school students from each of the six Swim Ontario regions who combine both swimming excellence and academic achievement.
