CPI Hoodies

Our CPI competition is still months away but planning is already in full swing!

cpiSynchro Sask is offering for pre-order a Trimark Howson Hoody (in heather grey).  This is the identical (minus the CPI Logo) lightweight hoody that all the athletes will be wearing at the 2015 Pan-Am games in Toronto.  It has a front kangaroo pocket, interior media pocket and sleeve cuffs with thumb exit.  65% polyester / 35% cotton slub yarn jersey knit.

CPI hoodies are to be pre-ordered before the event to ensure sizing and to avoid disappointment as only a few extras are printed for sale at the event on a first come first served basis. These hoodies were in high demand in past years, and they make a great souvenir!

Our club is opting for the personalized hoodies with club names and team colours down one sleeve at a cost of $65 each.

SIZING: The hoodies come in adult sizes ladies and men’s XS -XL and children’s XS (6-8), S (8-10),  M (10-12), L (12-14) and XL (14-16). Due to the fact these items are going to be personalized please ensure you order the correct size as no exchanges or returns can be made. When in doubt order a larger size. Follow this link for CPI Sizing Chart.

PAYMENT: Please ensure your payment of $65 per hoodie is in an envelope labelled CPI hoodie, your size and child’s name are clearly marked on it. Payments of cash or cheque to Thunder Bay Synchro can be given to Jeff, Cynthia or your team rep. parent by April 8th at the latest. A master list must be submitted to Synchro Sask by April 10 and thus late orders cannot be accepted. Ensure not to give your payment to anyone else as it may be missed and your order will not be included in our club order. If you are interested, order as soon as you can to avoid forgetting and missing the deadline.

Thank you!

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.
