Hello everyone!  Congratulations to all the girls for a great weekend and performances!  Hope everyone has recovered from the fabulous synchro weekend...minus the flu bug!


Just a few notes, we met with the coaches tonight and here’s how the end of the year is looking:


****Synchro will be at the regular times/days up until May 9th UNLESS you are told otherwise from your coach. 


****April 30th is the water show.  Start time is 7:15pm, the girls MUST be at the pool by 6:30pm with hair done (knoxed), head piece in and have their group bathing suit, coaches will have make up at the pool for the girls. The water show is where the girls are doing their routine they did at the Crocus Challenge.  Please invite all your friends and family to come see what the girls have been working so hard for this year.


****May 9th is the wind up/fun night, note the time will be 6:30-8pm for everyone.


Some parents have been asking, and we do not have the results yet from the Crocus Challenge sorry Sad smile


If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact any of us and we’ll do our best to answer!

deck suits

Parents new and old, we forgot one ingredient to take care of and have in the parent letter you received today.

At 7:30 on Thursday Patty will be at the pool to collect any deck suits you have that don't fit your girls anymore and will give them out to girls that need them or size you for what you need.

Deck suits are shorts and a top that are fabulous for water, they dry very quickly. They are donated every year so there is no cost. The girls wear them on the deck in Winnipeg before and after their competition.

Please, if you have deck suits that are too small bring them on Thursday, and if your daughter needs one see Patty.

Thank you!
