Comox Valley Blue Devils preparing for busy summer swim season

Since 1948, the Comox Valley Blue Devils has been providing a summer swim program for children of all abilities to pursue swim improvement, fitness and love of the sport. The program helps swimmers to gain confidence and self-esteem through both competitive and non-competitive swimming.

The club’s objective is to allow each swimmer to reach his or her potential through achieving personal best times. The program is open to children aged five to18 and offers a variety of levels:  For those ages 5-8 and just starting out, Little Devils offers a low coach-to-swimmer rate. Developmental is for those wishing to improve their strokes and try out a meet or two. Junior and Senior swimmers are encouraged to attend as many meets as desired, although it isn’t a requirement. Emphasis in all levels is on skill development within a fun and supportive environment.

There are several benefits to becoming a member of the Blue Devils Swim Club, aside from developing an important life-long skill. It offers opportunities for parents and children alike to make new friends, enjoy swim meet camp-outs, and trade summer boredom for healthy activity. Enhanced body health makes this an all-around fitness program as well as excellent cross-training for winter athletes wishing to maintain their endurance and strength.

This season welcomes the return of Drew Kuhnert as head coach. Drew’s coaching skill set appeals to all swimmers as he is strong technically, while imparting enthusiasm, hard work and fun.

The Blue Devils Swim Club is returning to its historical roots of a full season, four-month May through August program for Developmental, Junior and Senior swimmers. Little Devils will run June through August, two days per week.

Club president Rob Webb explains, “As a competitive swim club, the four-month format has a number of proven benefits: enhanced skill development, swimmer progression and a greater sense of swimmer self-confidence, not to mention the ability to build a cohesive swim team.  The numerous swim times per week for each group allows flexibility for families, as well as excellent value for price.”

Registration will take place in-person only on two separate nights: Returning swimmers, March 15 at the Aquatic Centre, 4-6 p.m. New registrants, April 12 Sports Centre Arena Lobby, 6-7:30 p.m. A late registration fee of $25 will apply after April 12.

For more information, please check the Web for Blue Devils Swim Club or call Rob Webb at 250-339-7304.
