Swim into a Great Season


Coach Haltom is the Canyon High School swimming coach. There are 12 events for boys and girls; altogether there are 24 events. There are sprint events, long-distance events, three relays for both genders, and the one-meter diving event.  The swimmers practice daily from 7 am until around 9 am. There’s one diver for the one-meter dive. The swim season started in October.

I asked three different players what their least favorite part is, and they all said getting up at 5 am to practice. The team all needs to practice on their starts and turns. Coach Haltom stated, “Our team is good at starts and sprints.” Something Coach Haltom would like to tell an upcoming swimmer is, “Come on out to the pool with a suit.”

 We wish our Canyon swimmers luck as they swim through the  2022-2023 season.
