On Wednesday we attended our second swim meet of the season at Thorndale Pool. They were great hosts, and there was some terrific swimming by all. At the end of the night it was Thorndale that won the meet with a score of 517 to 499 for Valleycrest.

On Friday, July 4th, a special event was held at Valleycrest to inaugurate the new pool facilities. Pierrefonds-Roxboro mayor Dimitrios Jim Beis, members of the city administration, SODEM, Cogela, Valleycrest Aquatic Association board members, and many others were present to celebrate this successful project and wonderful addition to our community.
Our amazing staff treated everyone to demonstrations of the extensive programming that Valleycrest Aquatic Association delivers, then concluded with a simulated water rescue with the help of the SODEM staff. Great work, everyone!
We had our first meet at Town of Mount Royal (TMR) pool on Wednesday. The TMR Piranhas put forward some good competition and ended up winning the meet with 539 points again our VYC Scorpions’ 489 points.
