Pacific Wave Synchronized Swim Club (PWS) is holding a water show tomorrow at Watermania to celebrate the end of a successful season.

The event aims to showcase the club's amazing routines this season and present a routine that includes all athletes from the club.

"In this routine, everyone will learn how to work together and experience doing cool movements with senior athletes," explained Meng Chen, the technical director at PWS.

Friends and family will also get a chance to get into the pool and try out artistic swimming with their kids.

"This is actually my first time to organize a water show for this club. I'm very excited as a coach," said Chen.

PWS's provincial stream team competed at the Jean Peters provincials in Kamloops earlier this month, winning solo gold and bronze medals for the 11-12 age category and a solo bronze medal for the 13-15 category. The 11-12 duet placed 5th, while the 13-15 team placed 4th overall.

The club also won big at the national level, with its junior mixed duet team winning gold and senior duet taking home silver medals, and the rest of the members achieving impressive rankings.

"The water show should be a fun, connected, and creative event to finish our season," said Chen.

Entrance to the show is by donation, and it is scheduled to run from 1:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. tomorrow at Watermania in Richmond.
