Ravensong Waterdancers bring home provincial awards

Club invited public to watch members perform routine Dec. 15

Ravensong Waterdancers brought home several honours from the 2019 Awards Banquet hosted by Synchro BC at the Surrey Arts Centre on Saturday, Dec 7.

The Ravensong Waterdancers 16-20 team consisting of team included Kaia Fuchs, Tabitha Miner, Samantha Mahony, Pascha Nemlander, Sydney Waldie, Natalie Kjellbotn and Danyka Thorburn was named Provincial Stream Team of the Year. While Kaia Fuchs was named 16-20 Provincial Stream Athlete of the Year. They are all coached by Debbie Provencher.

“These are pretty big honours that were decided upon, not only by scores at provincials (and point gains from qualifiers) but also other factors that were challenging to the athletes,” said Jessica Nemlander, club president. “For example, our team had to re-swim their entire routine because of a technical issue with the music on their first run-through.”

The waterdancers will showcase their routines at their Winter Watershow on Sunday, Dec. 15 at Ravensong Aquatic Centre at 5 p.m. They are inviting the public to come out and watch the show for free.

The performers will include recreation, limited competitive, competitive and masters teams as well as solos and a duet. Organizers recommend that you bring a chair as there is no on-deck seating.

Then on Dec. 17, the club will be holding their annual Bring A Friend Day. Those who want to try out the sport are also welcome to come and try out synchro from 6:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m., for free.

The club will start a new session in January for beginners which runs through to April. Goggles and swim cap are recommended and nose clips will be provided as necessary.

This is ideal for athletes age 7 and over or who have completed Swim Level 5. If anyone has any questions, do not hesitate to email us at ravensongsynchro@gmail.com or check out our website www.ravensongwaterdancers.ca
