Ravensong Waterdancers’ Artistic Swimmer, Kaia Fuchs (16), decided to challenge herself as an athlete this year, switching from Provincial Stream to National Stream Competitive Synchro. This has meant training as a soloist because there are not any National teams nearby on Vancouver Island.
Kaia is a dedicated and self-directed swimmer; she trains in the water 4-5 days per week as well as cross-trains at Circus Freaks in Parksville twice per week. She is committed to doing additional cardio, flexibility and strength workouts at home in her spare time. She had the good fortune of earning a spot on Team BC this year which has helped her to fine tune many of the National level elements that are required of her.
Her journey to Nationals has been hugely encouraged by coach Debbie Provencher. Debbie has given Kaia the rare gift of freedom to choreograph her own solos while offering guidance and technical feedback. Kaia is very proud of the routines she has created and is so thankful to her coach and the Ravensong Club for always being supportive and cheering her on!
This weekend, Kaia will travel to Kamloops with the hopes of qualifying for the National Qualifiers in Markham, Ontario later in March. We hope to see you at the fundraising event at Parksville Boston Pizza March 2nd to her dream become a reality!
