Nepean Synchro swim club celebrates its own version of ‘March Madness’!

posted Apr 7, 2014, 9:35 AM by Nepean Synchro

Nepean Synchro is one of the top ranked clubs in Ontario, and the club’s performance during the month of March showed just how strong we are!  Two out-of-town meets highlighted the month, along with increased focus on swimmer development and training as the club prepares for the final push to the end of the season.  The commitment of the swimmers and the dedication of the coaches is truly inspiring!

March began with three of our competitive teams heading to Muskoka to compete at the 2013 Ontario Winter Games.  This event is specifically geared towards provincial stream swimmers in the 11-12 and 13-15 year Team age groups.  The event only happens every two years, so we were all so proud that our 3 teams qualified to go to these games.  A big thank you goes out to all the swimmers for representing our club so well not only in the water, but by presenting themselves as confident young ladies wherever they went during the 3-day event.  As one of our swimmers told us, the highlight of the Winter Games was the chance to stay in a beautiful cottage in the woods at Camp Muskoka – all three teams in one cabin of 11 bunk beds – and having time together to bond.  This will definitely be an experience to remember for all who attended.  Congratulations also goes out to our swimmers for a strong showing in the pool, taking home a grand total of 4 gold, 4 silver, and 1 bronze medal along with an additional 5 top six placing’s in figures, team, duet and solo events!

Nepean Synchro’s ‘March Madness’  continued as all of our swimmers attended the East Regional Synchro meet in Toronto, March 22-23.  This event is a qualification event for the final Provincial meet of the season – the Ontario Open Age Group Synchronized Swimming Championships – one of the largest synchronized swimming events in the country.    Yet again, Nepean Synchro’s entire roster of swimmers showed just how talented the club is, bringing home an incredible 18 medals, and many more swimmers achieving their personal bests.  All the girls, no matter their age, showed true sportsmanship throughout the event, cheering each other on and supporting each other no matter what.   Many thanks go out to the coaches of Nepean Synchro, as all our swimmers would not be where they are today without their leadership.  Way to go Nepean!

As it is with March Madness in the world of college basketball, so it is with synchronized swimming – athletes & teams have just one chance to prove what they can do.  It takes focus, commitment, dedication, and true love of their sport to persevere.  The swimmers’ of Nepean Synchro should be so proud of themselves! Congratulations!
