Three members of the Tsunami Swim Team qualified for provincials this summer.

Corynn Ayres, 10, and Caiden Edwards, 12 both attended the BC AA Provincial Championship. This meet brought almost 400 top level swimmers from all over BC to compete at the Commonwealth Pool in Victoria.

Coral Ridinger, 10, attended the BC Summer Association Provincials in Kamloops.

All three swimmers did exceptionally well, earning lots of medals and ribbons, according to their coaches.

Ayres also achieved two BC AAA times, the highest level possible provincially, with outstanding swims in the 800-metre and the 200m freestyle events.

The Tsunami Swim Club is Port Alberni’s only swim team offering lots of program from Learn-To-Swim to Competitive programs. All youth ages five to 18 years are welcome to join with no tryouts necessary.
