Wardrobe

Our fresh shipment of Club Suits has finally arrived and, if you have pre-ordered, they should be in your hands in the next week or so.

Figure suits – the provincial stream black suits are now available. The national stream suits have not yet arrived. We are waiting for them from the supplier and there is a shortage at the moment.

Please have a look at the synchro store and browse items.

NEW CLUB JACKETS! We are looking at a new style club jacket for next season as our current design has been discontinued.  Update to follow.

Raffle Tickets

Every year Synchro BC requires we sell raffle tickets with 50% of the proceeds going to Synchro BC.   The other 50% will remain with the athlete as a fundraiser.

Summer Synchro!

BCAQ is happy to announce that it has be approved as a BCSSA Club (B.C. Summer Swimming Association) as of 2017!

What this means is that the athletes can continue to train over the summer in a reduced capacity (Monday and Wednesday evenings 4-7pm SSLC – NO WEEKENDS!) and learn some routines which may go and compete at some fun outdoor summer competitions in August. This is a great opportunity to stay in the water and get to show off some routines at the end of it all!

We wanted to let all of you know as early as we could so that you can plan your summers with this in mind.  More information regarding the program will be available on the website shortly.
