With the success of our swim team this year, coaches have been looking for one more swim meet to close the year.

The Maddy Kort Invitational in Belleville fits the bill. Meet package here.

It is a fun meet that’s open to all and even features 25m swims. The meet is also for a good cause, a scholarship in memory of Maddy Kort. From the meet package –

While traveling home from a family vacation in Florida over the March Break, the Kort family were in a horrific accident that took the life of Maddy (13) and her younger sister Joni (10).

Maddy breathed life and spirit into every moment of her six years on the Belleville Beast Swim Team. She was loved by her teammates and coaches who continue to feel her loss deeply.

Her parents, Pieter and Jamie are setting up a scholarship to help local underprivileged youth gain access to Maddy’s favourite sport. The proceeds of this meet will be donated to that fund.

We will have special practices for this meet and we’ll also plan a team event after the meet on Saturday. Details to come soon.
