Blue Devils registration on March 20

Summer swim club celebrating 65th season of operation

The Comox Valley Blue Devils Summer Swim Club is holding registration for the 2013 season on Wednesday, March 20 from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. in the lobby of the Sports Centre.

With a focus on fun, camaraderie and friendly competition, the Blue Devils celebrate its 65th season in 2013, making it one of the oldest youth sporting organizations in the Valley and the province.

Swimmers of all abilities from ages four to 18 are welcome.

The club offers many different programs, ranging from two to four months, including an aquatic conditioning program for swimmers wishing to maintain or enhance their fitness levels.

The ever-popular Little Devils program is for children four to seven years who are just learning to swim, and wish to do so in a fun and supportive environment. Under the direction of the head coaches, the club’s senior swimmers instruct the younger swimmers with respect to proper swim technique, using games, positive reinforcement and a low coach to swimmer ratio. First implemented three seasons ago, Little Devils is the club’s most popular program and has been replicated up and down the Island.

The season runs from April 29 to the middle of August. Swimmers will be indoors until the end of May, at both the Aquatic and Sports Centres, before moving to the City of Courtenay’s Outdoor Pool in June.

Whether your child’s goal is to be an Olympian (we’ve had a few of those), or you just want them to learn to swim well in order to be safe in our surrounding lakes, rivers and ocean, the Blue Devils is the perfect environment in which to train.
