Synchro club’s back

Like all pool users, the swimmers of the Campbell River Synchronized Swim Club have faced many challenges with the Strathcona Gardens pool undergoing renovations. The swimmers are very excited about the re-opening of the pool on Feb. 28. The club provides team building, and excellent fitness and water skills to the swimmers. Currently the competitive team, comprised of Ray Jordan, Breanna Massey, Devon Rodgers and Rachel Enns is preparing a routine themed, Take a Picture, which they will perform in Victoria at Island Regionals on April 9 and at provincials in mid-May.  They have been dry land training, driving to Courtenay and using the Anchor Inn pool to maintain their skills and work on their routine and figures for competition. The competitive team and any new swimmers will also showcase their skills at a season end finale in mid-May at Strathcona Gardens.  Included in the finale will be teams from the Comox Valley Orcas, whom this season’s new coach Leonna Hamm, also coaches.  Comox Valley Orcas have been generously sharing pool time with the Campbell River Synchro Club during our pool renovations.    Hamm, who has taken over the helm this season, came to the club from the Burnaby Caprice Synchro Club.  Hamm has 26 years of coaching experience and is an accomplished synchronized swimmer, having competed, and won at the national and international levels. She was part of a team that won a national championship and has brought home a Gold medal from Italy, and a Silver from Switzerland. Now she has brought those skills, and her genuine love and passion for the sport, to Campbell River Synchro.     The club is offering a special reduced rate for the last 10 weeks of the season from March 1 to mid-May, for new swimmers who wish to try the sport, and those who want to get back in the water.Anyone who would like to try the sport can contact the club, crsynchroswimclub@gmail.com
