MKSC Runs for the Cure

Written by Heather Beveridge.

RunForCure2013Whether you are a past or current MKSC member you are invited to Run or support the club as we participate for the second time this year! Last year was AMAZING!!!!!!! We had a group that ran the 5K as well as a group that walked it so everyone was able to participate at their own fitness level. This year I am hoping we can all dress a little crazier (I am thinking lots of pink boas!) and increase our group size!

Following last years run we did a lunch and so this year I will be looking to make a reservation somewhere near both the run site and the subway.

Our Team page can be found right here. You can join the team to run as well as make a donation!

There are not too many days left til the run so lets get this started!!!!!

See ya at the Pool!

P.S The deadline for us to get personalized MARKHAM SYNCHRO shirts is September 19th. If you have run before and know you will be registering please email me your size so I can submit the list by the 18th to be safe. We need 10 runners at the least to qualify for the shirts.

Novice Figures Meet in Elmira, ON

Written by Amanda Jackson.

On April 6th our novice and mini teams attended the Novice Figures Meet in Elmira, ON.  The girls participated in the figures and LTAD (Long Term Athlete Development) events.  Each of the swimmers did 3 figures, splits, and a 25m flutter kick sprint.

This was the novice swimmers first ever synchro competition. They had a very strong figures swim. They focused on extension and figure design, and it was very evident in their figures!
