But most of all, we are proud of the Swim team culture that has been developing this year.
Swimmers are swimming for the team,  encouraging each other, going crazy when swimmers swim PBs, they are proud to swim for their school and they are committed to working hard to improve.  Congratulations.  All of the above can be directly attributed to our awesome group of Swim Coaches who lead this programme.  We are so fortunate to have Coaches Darren, Braedon and Tracie who give so much time, energy, enthusiasm and expertise to the Swim team. Thanks Coaches.

I think junior Swim Team Captain Ryan summed it up nicely with this ….

I would like to congratulate EVERY SINGLE swimmer for doing so well during this competition. Every single swimmer tried their best, and were able to get countless PBs, and many also managed to rack up tons of points for our school (shoutout to Samantha, Anson and Anson!). It is without question that everyone’s hard work and dedication to this demanding sport/team has paid off!

More importantly, I would like to, once again, thank all of our coaches for not only giving us this amazing, once in a lifetime (more like a few but you get the point) opportunity for us, and supporting, encouraging and helping us throughout this trip, but for also dedicating their time for US, not for themselves (no one really WANTS to wake up that early for training).

More importantly, from this trip I am really impressed with our team spirit, our supportiveness, which is really important because even though a lot of the time you swim alone, we are all part of a team. Everyone was very encouraging to one another, which led to the success of our swimmers, given the fact that it was the first SEASAC for many swimmers (younger ones especially).

Great job everyone and I hope that everyone will continue to train even harder for next year!

Fantastic Results for our Elite Gymnasts @ SEASAC

By | News & Updates | No Comments

Congratulations to our Senior Gymnastics Team who returned this week from SEASAC Gymnastics in Singapore.

Our elite team of Level 5 (Kelsey, Maddy, Larissa and Jasmine)  and Level 6 (Christine) performed extremely well at this very competitive meet.
The highlight of the event was Christine’s Bronze on the Uneven Bars, Silver on the Beam and Bronze in the All-around (combined scores). Three Senior SEASAC Medals is amazing, and these are some of the best results for CDNIS at a Senior SEASAC Gymnastics in the last 5 years; they are the result of Christine’s commitment and hard work.  Amazing to think she has also had time this year to be a great Volleyball player and Basketballer for CDNIS too! Almost all of the other Level 6 gymnasts at SEASAC would only compete in gymnastics and all would train 10-15 hours per week (like Christine).
Congratulations also to Kelsey who had her best result on the Floor on Day 1, to Maddy who is Grade 6 and performed well in all events in her first Senior SEASAC, to Larissa who had a top 10 on the Floor on Day 2 and to Jasmine who battled illness on Day 1 but showed her strength of character to perform well on Day 2.
Thanks to Coaches Ivy and Michael for leading the team and to Manager Pringle and Retired Gymnast Sharmaine for leading the trip.

2018 Splash Dash Relay

By | News & Updates | No Comments

Dear Splash Friends

Thank you for supporting our Splash Dash Relay on Sunday.  It was a terrific day for all involved, but particularly for the Splashers who loved every minute.  Thank you for making their day and ours!   We are so happy that many of you were able to witness the enthusiasm and dedication that we as Splash coaches get to experience every single week.

Results are in!

Nearly 300 swimmers in 44 teams from companies, families, schools and swim clubs took part in eight hotly competed heats.

Congratulations to The Olympians’ Camille Cheng, Sandy Chan, Hannah Wilson and Splashers, Lynly Flores and Richmond de Los Reyes who notched a record 104 laps, narrowly pipping a super-charged Hong Kong Island Stingrays team who were just 20 metres behind in the final heat of the day.

There were also heat wins for Eversheds Sutherland, Breakers, Generali, TeamCIS, CarGuyOs, The Shape of Water and Fastlane.

See the final results and event photos (more photos to come). Courtesy of Melanie Catamin, Leeh Ann and Valerie Tao.

Fundraising breaks the water level!

We are thrilled to report that we have so far raised over HK$ 525,000 and donations keep coming in.  Our Simply Giving event page will remain open through March 31st.  A special thanks to Generali (with over 120 people donating to their page!), UBS, Team Cousins and Fastlane who raised the most in their respective divisions.

Finally, a big thank you to Lead Sponsor Herbert Smith Freehills as well as Lush, Feel Good Factor, The Peninsula and 2XU for the generous prizes and Canadian International School for hosting the event.

Spirit of Splash

This was the most contested award as every team got into the spirit of things.  Congratulations to St James’s Place, The Swimenovic Family and CDNIS Swim Team for stealing the judges eye.  And a shout out to Thess Saguid, Mercy Cejas, Bernadette Arellano, Imelda Maniquiz, Brenda Domingo and Rona Gonzalez for their Spirit of Splash awards.

As we hope you discovered on Sunday, Splash is not just about swimming.  It’s about self-esteem, friendship, and community.  We are grateful for the financial support you have all provided to ensure that Splash becomes a permanent fixture in Hong Kong and that we can continue to share the opportunity to learn to swim.

With gratitude,

Libby Alexander
Co-Founder & Executive Director
