Thank you to Stephan Miermont!

Thank you to Stephan for a wonderful week of choreography! From Dinos to Star Wars we have some wonderfully creative routines and we can’t wait to see them in their entirety. Thank you also for being part of the choreography course we hosted with Synchro Ontario and opened up to 48 coaches from across the province.

Athletic Uniform Swap

In an effort to minimize costs for the Club and families, we are organizing an Athletic Uniform Swap / Collection taking place at the same time as uniform sizing on October 1st at the Olympium.

Items ranging from gently used team uniform jackets to swim suits may be exchanged. There will be a table set up at the front entrance where parents can hand in items which they would like to sell or exchange.  They will also have an opportunity to purchase gently used items.  Our uniform coordinator Stephanie will take the used items and make them available for sale on the Club Uniform Sizing Day.

Parents need to include with item:  name of parent, name of swimmer, cost and contact phone number.
