The Comox Valley Blue Devils summer swim season is off to a great start, under the guidance of coaches Samantha Gauthier and Kyla deWitt, as the club looks to build on last year’s successful season.
Over 20 swimmers competed in the first meet of the season June 2 and 3 at the Cowichan Aquatic Centre. Throughout the weekend, there was plenty of fast racing and amazing team spirit. The coaches were particularly pleased with the swims of Sebastien Morin and Callie Blasco. Both had a successful meet. Sebastien took off more than a minute total from all his races, and Callie achieved three best times.
The team is gearing up for the Oak Bay meet June 16-17.
There is still room to register in the club’s Little Devils program, which kicks off Monday, June 18 and runs to Aug. 10. Little Devils is geared to swimmers four to eight. Emphasis in on skill development in a fun, supportive environment. The program offers a low coach-to-swimmer ratio, which enables swimmers to progress at a faster rate.
One of B.C.’s oldest swim clubs, the Blue Devils have provided thousands of Comox Valley youth with fitness, friendship, competition and enjoyment since 1948. The club caters to all swimmers, providing excellent coaching and enabling every swimmer to develop to the full potential of their individual interest.
