The Ravensong Breakers are the little swim team with a lot of heart

Parksville Qualicum Beach swim team is making waves at each swim meet despite their small size

It’s the “little club that could.”

The Ravensong Breakers swim team is making waves in the pool with each swim meet they attend despite their size. Compared to their counterparts, the Breakers is a small team of swimmers. They have 50 members, to be exact. That’s 27 swimmers less than Port Alberni has and about 400 less than the club from Nanaimo has.

Their success is thanks in part to the coaching from John Campbell, who’s been with the Breakers club for the past 15 years.

“Our club is fortunate to have John as our coach,” said assistant coach Susan Thomson. “John is a gem and he’s not just incredible at coaching, he connects and cares about the kids. That speaks to the number of alumni we have that come back and offer to help out in any way they can, either in the pool or on the pool deck.”

Recently at the Vancouver Island Swim Meet, the Breakers placed fifth out of 10 teams and were just 100 points shy of finishing in fourth place. The little club continues to impress with each showing, regardless of how big the other teams are.
