BLUE DEVIL SWIMMERS dive into the pool.

Blue Devils host annual outdoor swim meet

Over 250 swimmers and families make it a weekend at Lewis Park

The Blue Devils Summer Swim Club celebrated its 65th season with their annual swim meet held at the Memorial Pool in Lewis Park.

There were over 250 swimmers and families who came from all over the Island, making this the biggest meet so far.  It was the first swim meet for many of the Blue Devils, especially the little ones who only graduated from the Little Devils program last year.  However with  all their prowess they came up to the blocks , dove in and swam  50m and 100m.

The coaches were impressed with the swimmers and all their hard work and  will now focus on helping   each swimmer to reach their full potential as athletes,  while having a summer full of fun.

The Blue Devils Summer Swim Club thank  Water Pure and Simple, Home Depot, Atlas Restaurant, Anderton Nursery, Walmart, Extreme Runners, Rattan Plus, Michaels Off Main, Subway Comox, Portuguese Joes, Laughing Oyster Book Store, Karen at the Courtenay Swim Shop, North Island College, City of Courtenay, coaches, and all the families of the Blue Devils Swim Club who made this swim meet so successful.
