Synchro Canada announces its 2018 13-15 National Team
The athletes took part in a selection process that started at the National Qualifier in Calgary last March and culminated in a final evaluation phase held at the conclusion of the 2018 Canadian Espoir Championships in Surrey, BC.
The coaching team for the Canadian 13-15 Team was announced last March. Leading the team will be Manny Wu, from Ajax, ON, who has been named Head Coach. Laura Swift, from Pointe-Claire, QC will be the assistant coach.
The two coaches were pleased with the results of the selection process. “We are very excited to be working with such talented athletes. Throughout the selection process they have demonstrated their abilities and we can see how hard they have all worked in their clubs to earn a spot on this team.”
“Congratulations to the newly selected team,” added Synchro Canada Technical Director Leslie Sproule. “The evaluation process utilized this year demanded that our athletes demonstrate the ability to repeat consistent performances as we used the Qualifier and Espoir figure results to identify our top group. These athletes have solid foundational skills and with the strong and complementary coaching skills of Manny Wu and Laura Swift, I anticipate successful performances at UANA this summer”.
