Swimmers off to Alberta

The Polar Bear Swim Club will be off to Edmonton for the Alberta Senior Provincial Championships beginning Jan. 29.

The team will consist of just four swimmers, all in the boys category - Bronson Dolynny, Breton Walker, Joshua Lee and Roman Asmundson - and they will be coached by Jane Mooney.

The quartet will each have individual events and will also team up to compete in relays as well.

Back on the oche

Round three of the Yellowknife Darts Association's zone playdowns will go off tomorrow afternoon at Hot Shots Pub and Grub.

The playdowns are open to any darts player, male or female, living in the city and is the first step toward qualifying for the Territorial Darts Championships, which are also taking place in March in Yellowknife.

Registration is between 10 and 10:30 a.m. with play beginning shortly after.

Three sports in one

The Racquet Club will be hosting an event where three racquet sports will be rolled into one.

The event is called the Triple Threat and will happen at the club Jan. 30 and 31.

Ozzie Vallejos, head squash pro at the club, said everyone who enters will compete in squash, badminton and mini-tennis.

Each match in the three disciplines will feature a race to 15 points and every single point scored, regardless of the result, will be counted toward a person's total. The person with the most number of points scored from the three events will be the winner.

Vallejos said he's still mulling around the idea of whether to make this an straight single-elimination event or have a round-robin first and then go to a playoff round.
