News and Announcements

To all Nanaimo White Rapids Swim Families,

At this holiday time, as President of the Nanaimo White Rapids and on behalf of your committed and tireless Board members, we would like to wish you all the very best of the season.

2014 was another fantastic and fun year at the Kin Pool. 2015 is shaping up to continue the tradition of fun, friendships and exciting performances in the pool!

I would also like to express my gratitude to all the parents/guardians who volunteered during the season to make the White Rapids the sporting institution that fosters individual, team and community development.

I look forward to seeing you all in the New Year and perhaps at Westwood on New Years Day!

Season’s Greetings,
Leah Johnson
NWRSC President

New Years Day Run and Dip

Posted by Nanaimo White Rapids Swim Club at Dec 21, 2014 11:53PM PST ( 0 Comments )

The Bastion Running Club is hosting a free New Years Day Run and Dip at Westwood Lake on January 1st. The event consists of a social run around the lake starting at 10:00am, followed by an optional plunge, dip, or scamper into the lake at the main beach. There will be hot chilli and coffee on hand for those brave enough to test the water after their jaunt around the lake! Wear your White Rapids gear and kick off 2015 the right way!
