Amazing results for the Duets at the 2017 Jean Peters BC Swim Championships!
The 13-15 Duet took 3rd place in the Province with an amazing swim on the second day of competition. This Duet had less than two months working with coach Carly to change the routine from a team routine to a duet. Amazing work that paid off in the end!
The 11-12 Intermediate duet spent the season working with coach Alyssa to create a fun and challenging routine set to Star Wars music. This was their first season swimming together and in the 11-12 Intermediate category, They swam both their figures and routine on the first day of competition and did a great job with both.
Looking forward to next season already to see what these athletes, and new team members will do in the 2017-2018 season!
Chances are if you've been to the pool while the club is practicing you've seen the new speaker! We went into this season knowing that we wanted to upgrade the speaker system we were using, but when that one completely stopped working we knew we needed a new speaker right away!
Thanks to an amazing donation from the Kelowna Sunrise Rotary Club along with a great team bootle drive we were able to purchase a brand new SychroSound Speaker so that the swimmers can now hear the music under the water! The new speaker arrived in early December just in time for our first club Watershow of the season!
Thanks again Kelowna Sunrise Rotary, your support has really made a huge difference to the Kelowna Dolphins!
The Under 12 Novice team had a great year, taking part in four competitions: two regional meets, one fun meet at our home pool, and then finishing the year with the BC Provincial Competition in Nanaimo. The 12U Novice team benefited from the assistance of two coaches this year Carly and Alyssa.
The 13-15 Duet team had a successful year. Both athletes will be competing at the BC Summer Games this summer, taking part in the team routine category with swimmers from our region as well as performing their own Bollywood inspired routine. The Duet team took part in four competitions this year - two regional meets, the Interior Fun Meet (at our home pool) and finished the season with a strong performance at the BC Provincial Competition in Nanaimo. The 13-15 year old team was coached by Carly.
Take a look at the step-by-step process of doing hair and make-up for a synchronized swimming competition. Three Dolphins - Erin, Hannah, and Paige take you through the process.
Step 1: Wake up early and meet in hotel room
Step 2: Hair up in a synchro bun (start with a tight ponytail and then either twist the hair up into a bun or braid the ponytail and then twist up, using plenty of pins as you go)
Step 3: Gelatin and make-up!
Three Dolphins swimmers took part in the Routine Training Meet, held this past weekend in Surrey. It was the first routine competition ever for both our Level 1 soloists - Paige Pomeroy and Erin Epp. The girls, along with Level 4 soloist Hannah Ruste, represented the club extremely well. They all had amazing swims and had a lot of fun. The girls are now working towards Interior Regionals, which will be hosted by the Dolphins on April 20th.
Competitive swimmers had their second training meet of the season this past weekend in Kamloops. Our level 1 athletes took the top two spots in their figure event, with Erin Epp placing 1st and Paige Pomeroy placing 2nd. Level 4 athlete Hannah Ruste placed 1st in her figures event as well as the technical skills event.
Great work, Dolphins!
The Dolphins kickstarted their competitive season this past weekend with a training meet in Surrey. The first competition of the season coincides with the annual Synchro BC Fall Conference, which gives opportunities for coaches, club executive members, and athletes to learn from special guest presents. Our athletes had a great weekend, with Erin Epp and Paige Pomeroy placing 3rd and 16th respectively in the Level 1 figures event, while Hannah Ruse placed 6th in Level 4 figures.
