Sometimes it’s about the bling

A weekly update from Coach Rodrigo and Coach Fraser

What a great time we had at the March Madness tournament in Etobicoke this past weekend. We had two teams entered in the 11U Category and one of our teams managed to land a 3rd place finish. (Medals coming soon!)

It was the first tournament for our team and we really showed that we belonged in the pool with the top teams from across Ontario and Quebec. The crowd really enjoyed watching our games and were celebrating each and every small victory – from winning a swim-off to winning a game. We all learned so much and truly got to bond as a team! A big thanks to all the coaches and to all the parents for making this happen for our athletes! Go Wave Go!

Now on to what’s next!

We have two events this weekend. It will be busy. First there’s the Yellow & Blue 2: Electric Boogaloo gala on Saturday and then we’re back to the CW Winter Classic Week 3 on the Sunday. Jam-packed fun for everyone.

Our older Jnr Waves athletes (Bea, Ryder, Aline, Fiona, Audrey, Katya)  that played up with our second 13U team this past were true champions and should be recognized for their perseverance. Under the guidance of Coach Andy and Coach Waneek they played with true grit against big odds. Coach Rodrigo and I are excited to see them in the pool again this weekend for our swim gala as  we are sure that a few new club records will be set by these athletes. This is a major reason why WAVE does both swimming and water polo — an individual and a team sport — as there are more opportunities for greatness (especially since the age-grouping for the two sports is different)!

And talking about greatness…there are my scones

The first person to email me gets a ball of scone dough if they can tell me what it takes for a 10 year old girl to qualify for the 50m Freestyle in the Ontario Festivals meet in a short course pool (25M).

Congrats to Noah and Ryder. Your dough balls are made and are in my freezer. I’ll bring them on Saturday.
