Long Weekend Vibes
Happy BC Day long weekend everyone! August has snuck up on us once again… every year it just feels just a wee bit too fast. Our club offers so many opportunities to participate and get active – make sure to get out and do all the things you’ve wanted to do this summer before it’s too late!
Please note, lessons continue as usual on Monday August 7.
Good Luck to our competitive swimmers at the Fraser South Regional Championship this weekend. The swim meet will be at Watermania this Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Go Seahorses!
Last Thursday night, CBSC Competitive Artistic Swimmers gathered at Guildford Pool for Regionals. Unfortunately, the event hit a snag as the pool had to be evacuated before it even started. It was an unforgettable experience with firefighters spraying down the athletes as part of a full HazMat response! With the event canceled, a tough decision was made to grant all athletes a bye to Provincials in Nanaimo on August 15th. Best of luck to all the Provincial-bound athletes!
But fret not, they still have one more chance to showcase their hard work. Join us this Wednesday, August 9th at 6:30pm at the CBSC Main Pool for the CBSC Artistic Swimming Exhibition. It’s a fantastic opportunity for Star swimmers to witness the skill and artistry of competitive art swimming! Following the exhibition, don’t miss out on the CBSC Alumni Water Polo game at 6:45pm!
Regional Update: We had an excellent showing from all of our teams at Regionals on Wednesday.
- Ocat2 – Gold
- U16 – Gold
- U14- Gold and Silver
- U12 – Silver and 4th
Congrats to all of our players! And a special thank you to all of our coaches.
