October Recap

Even though meet season hasn’t started yet, October was a busy month for BU Synchro!  Here’s a recap of some of our highlights:

1)- Volunteering! We took time out of a busy week to volunteer at the Waltham Youth Hockey Race on October 14th.  It was a great way to get in touch with the community, support youth sports programs, spread some positivity, and bond with our teammates!

2)- Fundraising!  October 29th was BU Synchro’s first ever lap-athon!  Swimmers and coaches participated, swimming as many laps as they could in 30 minutes.  Our friends and family pledged donations per lap, and we raised over $2,500 for our nationals fund! We love our fans!

3)- Celebrating!  Can’t write a post about October without mentioning Halloween!  We wrapped up the month with a festive practice on October 31st.  Swimmers and coaches came in their most creative waterproof costumes, and we had some spooky fun before getting to work.

Stay tuned for everything we’ll be up to in November, most notably our first meet of the season at Wheaton on November 19th!

Season Off to a Great Start!

We’re super excited for the season ahead!  Over the last few weeks, we met new swimmers at Splash and a tabling event we hosted during FitRec fun day.  Our two-week trial period is over, and we have 14 swimmers committed for the season ahead!! Now we’re gearing up for our figures meet at Wheaton in November.  Stay tuned for more updates!

First Practice of the Year!

Join us Tuesday 9/9 at room L133 in FitRec at 7PM. There you’ll get to hear a little more about our team before getting in the pool. We will swim some laps to warm up and be teaching some introductory synchro skills! We have pool time at 8PM and will be in the water until 9 or 10PM. It’ll be a very easy-going practice and just because you swim with us on Tuesday doesn’t mean you need to join the team. But please let us know if you decide you do want to come back for Thursday practice!

Bring: swim cap, swim suit, towel, water, noseclip, goggles! We have noseclips to lend or purchase if you do not have one. Goggles and caps can be purchased at the FitRec pro shop if you need them.

Hope to see you there!

It’s almost September!

We’re so excited to be back in the pool in September and we’re looking for some new friends to join us! If you’re interested in joining or have more questions about the team please contact our team President Elissa Feist or Vice President Lindsay Hawthorne! We’ll be at SPLASH and the Club Sports Expo in the fall and our first practice will be shortly after the first week of classes. More updates to come!
