2016 Waterloo Invitational

Written by Alacoe MacTavish.

The Waterloo Invitational competition marks the season’s first “routine" competition for our provincial competitive MKSC swimmers.  On January 30, 2016, we had many of our provincial competitive teams swim their routines for the first time this year.  There were a total of 170 routines performed at the Wilfred Laurier University Pool.  MKSC is very proud of our swimmers that competed here!

Viviana started the day off with her 16-20 solo and she had a great 10th place finish.  Then came the 13-15 team routine event, which had 18 teams.  Our two teams both had amazing swims with Coach Candelaria’s 14 year old team finishing 4th & Coach Heather's 15 year old team placing 2nd.

Maia & Jaeden then competed their 13-15 Duet and had a great 4th place finish.  To end the day, we had Regan swim her 13-15 solo where she placed 10th.

Congratulations to all swimmers and coaches.  What a great way to kick off the competitive routine season.  It will be exciting to see you all continue to challenge yourselves in reaching your goals this season.  Keep up the hard work!

Run for the Cure 2015

Written by Alacoe MacTavish.


Sunday, October 4, 2015 marked Markham Synchro’s 3rd year participating in the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation’s CIBC Run for the Cure.  This 5 KM walk is the largest single-day volunteer-led event in Canada in support of the breast cancer cause and Markham Synchro is very proud to be a part of this day.  Together, Canada raised $21.5 million in 2015.

We were led once again by our team captain, Coach Heather.  We had swimmers from all of our provincial teams, siblings of swimmers and parents & grandparents come out and support Markham Synchro again this year.  We had a total of 21 members of MKSC participate in the 5 KM Walk.  The day started off cooler than we had hoped, but that just meant we got to layer more “pink" on :)  Our Club was able to surpass our fundraising goal of $2000 and our total amount fundraised was $2960.  Great job MKSC!  

The Markham Synchro Team looked amazing all "pink’d out” & everyone had a great time supporting this great cause.  

We have already circled the date in our 2016 calendars … see you … MKSC will be there and we will bring an even stronger team!  See you all there!
