Bingo Volunteers Needed

‎All Competitive TBSSC Families:bingo

BINGO VOLUNTEERS NEEDED:
The club needs a few more bingo volunteers for next year. This is a large part of our fundraising and if you are a bingo volunteer it will be approximately 1-2 bingos a month and will lessen the amount of your participation in other club fundraisers.
If you want to be a bingo volunteer please let Karen know by clicking here and she will get you signed up for the first training in the fall.
Thanks!

 

TBaySynchro Partners with Northwest Tobacco Control Area Network!

Thunder Bay Synchro and the Northwest Tobacco Control Area Network have joined forces this season to promote Smoke Free Sport. Our message has been posted on the televisions at LU, on the club bulletin board and on the Thunder Bay Synchro website.

With the use of nose plugs, straws and balloons, the girls simulated what it would be like to exercise if they were smokers. They also participated in an activity to “Freeze the Industry” and post their message using social media. The swimmers pledged to be smoke free and received a t shirt and swim cap with the message, Synch Don’t Stink, and Proud to be Smoke Free. Two of the high school aged girls will have the opportunity to participate in a full day youth workshop on April 24.

The Recreational swimmers will have the opportunity to take the pledge at the Spring Water Show. They will receive their t-shirts, from Liz Kreitner ( NWTCAN) and have a group photo taken.

Thank you to Liz Kreitner (NWTCAN), Craig Kuzmich for designing our logo,
Bruce Johnson for photographing the event, and Jeanette Johnson for posting our message on the club website.

What is Synchro?

 

Synchronized swimming athletes have the power of a water polo player, the endurance of a long-distance runner, the strength of a gymnast, and the grace and elegance of a dancer. Swimmers must synchronize their movements with their teammates and the music.They must be able to execute inverted, gymnastics-like movements while holding their breath underwater.They do this in an unstable environment, never touching the bottom of the pool!

Synchronized swimming is simultaneously graceful and physically challenging.                  It is a demanding sport presented as a beautiful art form.
