Ravensong Breakers

The Ravensong Breakers season has started and will run until June.

The swim team, usually one of the smallest at meets, had great success last season, consistently placing in the top two teams north of Victoria. Out of 150 provincial teams they generally place in the top 15, as high as 10th.

Former Breakers include Kelly Aspinall, current Canadian record holder for the 50M butterfly, Maran Kokoszka, who now swims at SFU and was a senior national qualifier and provincial champion in the 100 and 200M backstroke, Megan Romkes, provincial champion in the 200M butterfly and Jack Confortin and Camry Stannard, both AA provincial champions.

To join the team drop by Ravensong Pool Monday to Friday, 4:30-6:30, where head coach John Campbell will be on the deck, or contact board president Colleen Canning at 250–951–5743 or
