Burlington Recreational Extravaganza!

Written by Amanda Jackson.

On February 28th our novice and mini teams travelled to Burlington to participate in the Burlington Recreational Extravaganza.  This meet included both a figures and routine portion.  The day started off with a figures competition, all of the girls who participated in the competition did well, a special mention goes out to Emma who placed third in the 8 and Under category at her very first figures meet!
 
For many of the girls this was their first synchro meet and they experienced gelling their hair for the first time- an experience for both the moms and the girls!  Then in the afternoon the teams swam.  It is still early in the season, so the team competition is not ranked, instead awards of recognition are given.  Both of our teams earned recognition in Best Patterns. 
 
Way to go girls, we hope you enjoyed your first taste of synchro competition!

1st place for Mini Team in Burlington

Written by Bella Taekema.

IMG 5356 1The 8 and under team went to their first competition in Burlington on February 28th. The girls swam a very clean routine despite the fact that their music cut out and they had to swim the routine again! They ended up winning first in their category for their awesome patterns. As a coach I am proud of how the girls swam under pressure and how they rocked their Under The Sea routine! 

Additionally, we had Emma win third at her first figures competition. What an awesome competition. I am looking forward to all the awesome accomplishments that are in this teams future.

New for 2015!

Written by Amanda Jackson.

For those that have taken a recreational synchro stars session, and are interested in continuing we are offering an advanced recreational class. 
 
The class will take place on Thursday evenings from 5-6pm at Markham Centennial Pool.  Those who choose to join this class will stay together as one group through Winter (January to March Break) and Spring (after March Break to May) sessions.  They will stay together as a team working on their Swim Synchro levels and on their routine to prepare it to swim in the annual Watershow in May.
