Wow! It is hard to believe that the second to last week of our ALPS season has already passed.
The last regular season meet for our divers took place on August 6 at Baie D’urfé Pool. We did not win the meet but we had some great finishes for our divers. We have had top finishes every week but having fewer divers has often caused victory to elude us. The divers had fun and we hope that many of our weekly divers will have qualified to Diving Finals on Sunday August 20. They will be practicing their best moves this week to be ready for that big day!
Go Dolphins Divers!
The last regular season meet for our swimmers took place this past Wednesday at home. It was a nail-biter of a meet but our Dolphins prevailed with 535 points to CAVIP’s 517. It was a long meet, with unforeseen delays, including a medical emergency which thankfully turned out fine: the coach from CAVIP who left the site in an ambulance was picked up by her team mates on the way home and she was doing well. Kudos to our Dolphins Coaches for their professional handling of the situation.
Tomorrow, at CAVIP, our Section Finals team will meet the other 7 teams from Section A. All members are welcome to come out and cheer on their team mates however the bus taking the team out is reserved for coaches and those competing as there is limited space. If you would like to drive out and watch the event directions by car can be found here: Map to CAVIP. You can find where to park here: Parking at CAVIP.
The team will be competing tomorrow for a chance to qualify to FINALS next Saturday at Valois Pool. For our swimmers to qualify ALPS will select the fastest 18 swimmers in each individual event from the Combined Results of Sections A, B and C (including reserves up to 21st place). Our fastest 4 free-style swimmers for each age group will also be invited to participate in the relays. We will know the results as early as Sunday night but for sure by Monday morning next week.
Go Dolphins Swimmers!
Our synchro swimmers competed in the Summer Swimmers’ Meet on Thursday. We are still awaiting the final results to be posted and the girls had an amazing time. Next Tuesday, August 15, CIT Laetitia Mir-Orefice, will be competing in the Solo Competition and on Thursday, August 17 our Junior Girls will be competing in the Team Competition.
Go Dolphins Synchro Swimmers!
The First Annual Coaches Versus Kids water polo match took place to great enthusiasm and after hard fought matches it was declared a tie! Water Polo will continue next week with fun practices.
Go Dolphins Water Polo!
COACHES’ APPRECIATION DAY
We would like to declare Friday, August 18, our last day of Dolphins practices for 2017, Coaches’ Appreciation Day. We know they deserve our appreciation every day for all they do and for how well they do it. They ensure that all of the children have fun and develop their skills all summer long. In our opinion, they are the best coaches in ALPS!
Here’s to our Dolphins Coaches! Hip, hip hooray!
See you on deck next week for our last week of the season!
Go Dolphins Go!
