New Year, New Focus

Day 6

Hello All!!

Welcome to our 2015 season!! We are very excited to announce that there are four new swimmers joining us this year:

• Gabrielle Boisvert (Quebec, QC)

• Rebecca Harrower (Edmonton, AB)

• Roxanne Morneau-Carrier (Quebec, QC)

• Elizabeth Savard (Laval, QC)

Big congratulations to these girls on joining our family! It’s going to be a great learning experience and worth every minute!!

As we start our new year, we have new goals and new expectations for each other.  This is the biggest year of our lives as we make our journey to the Olympic Games in Rio De Janeiro, which will take place in August of 2016.  However, our qualification for these Games will take place in March of 2016, meaning that we must be very efficient and “on the ball” as we train for the swim that will change our futures!

We are also incredibly excited to have our new training facility at the Olympic Stadium in Montreal, QC.

It has been an incredible welcome to the new pool with some amazing perks for our Canadian Athletes.  Soon there will be athletes from different sports including Synchronized Swimming, Speed Swimming, Diving, Water Polo, Judo, Fencing, Speed Skating and many more!!

This new centre is going to give us the opportunity to train to our fullest capacity, starting with a great cross training program and our own pool to accommodate our needs for the next Olympics. This is exactly what we are going to need as we fight for our dreams!!


This year we are going to be working our butts off to improve our routines and get as fit as we possibly can towards competing at the Pan Am Games and World Championships later in the year.  2015 is going to be a major chance to work on our routines and change what we need to increase our scores for future competitions. Every second will have to count and I have a feeling that this team is up for the challenge!

The team knows what it’s going to take to get to where we need to be, now all we need is to show the world what we can do!! The time has come for us to buckle down and push the limits!!
