Comox Valley Orcas win Synchro BC award

The Comox Valley Orcas Synchronized Swim Club won an award at the Synchro BC Banquet at the end of October.

Synchro BC is the governing body for the sport of synchronized swimming in the province.  The award was for Athlete Growth in the Club Development category and the club was chosen from all of the clubs registered from across B.C. with Synchro BC.

“The recent increase in the size of the swim organization got the team nominated and won!” said Orcas president Candice Spain.

“The award is an honour and gives the society incentive to keep promoting the club and the sport of synchronized swimming here in the Comox Valley.”

As the season started in September, a full Competitive and a full Rec Stars team were formed (eight members in each).  Squirts (younger children) and Masters (adults) also started strong.

Meets for the Comp girls include Burnaby and Kamloops this year.  As meets are always an expense to swimmers’ families, the CV Orcas will be out and about fundraising to help with the costs.  “The Orcas have an account at both bottle depots in the Comox Valley if you would like to help,” Spain noted.

At Christmas, a Water Show is planned.  The two teams will be performing their routines and everyone is welcome.  It will be held at the Comox Valley Sports Centre (Vanier Drive) at 6 p.m. on Dec. 12.  If you or someone in your family is interested in the sport or would just like to watch, come on down!

Squirts and Masters classes will be starting again in January.  Watch the website at www.cvorcas.com or join us on Facebook at Comox Valley Orcas.
