Grand Forks, BC - 2018 swim meet cancelled due to extreme flooding in the community.
Grand Forks is the only one-day meet. This meet is also especially designed to be fun for novice and young swimmers.
Tips for travel to Grand Forks
Cross the border at Laurier, north of Orient (go through Kettle Falls, cross the river, and stay to the right as you go past Barney's Junction.) DO NOT cross the border north of Northport - this will add about 45 minutes to your drive.
The Laurier border crossing is open from 8:00 am - midnight. It takes about 20 minutes to get from the border to the swim center in Grand Forks, which means you pretty much need to be at the border when it opens to be there in time for warm-ups.
If you have questions about what you can bring across the border, call directly to the crossing at (509) 684-2100.
The Grand Forks Recreation Centre is located at 2020 Central Avenue, Grand Forks, B.C. V0H 1H0. (See the map). Drive through Grand Forks, turn LEFT onto Central Avenue, go several blocks, past the school. The recreation center will be on your right.
TIP: There's a great skateboard park right next to the swim area, so bring your skateboard and/or scooter to play on between races!
