Synchro swimming returns to NDCC in the fall

The Nelson Reflections are gearing up for the start of the new season.

The Nelson Reflections synchronized swimming team is looking for new members ahead of the NDCC's pool opening in the fall.

The Nelson Reflections are excited to be starting up this fall offering synchronized swimming once again.

The Reflections started in 1994 and have been a big part of the aquatic programs at the Nelson and District Community Complex. Now with the pool renovation almost complete we are excited to get back in the water and start up again.

The club will be coached by Erin Fitchett and Brooke Madore. Coaches have been working on creating a dynamic program and are excited to roll it out to young athletes that love the water, dance, music and fun! Practices will focus on the Synchro Canada STAR Program and creating routines to perform at shows during the year.

In order to join synchro, swimmers should be able to swim one length of the 25-metre pool, be comfortable in deep water, be able to practise one day a week and be at least seven years old.

If you’re interested in signing up or for more information, contact Fitchett at nelsonreflections@shaw.ca or visit nelsonreflections.com.
