The first national aquatics organization to train at the Toronto Pan Am Sports Centre (TPASC) is making a splash.  Synchro Canada has moved into the new facility at the University of Toronto Scarborough, and the athletes, who finished fourth at the London 2012 Olympics, expect that training in the pools where they will compete in the 2015 PanAm Games will give them an advantage.  For UTSC students, faculty and staff, the advantage is to have the example of world-class athletes in their midst. 

“It’s a great pleasure to welcome Synchro Canada to UTSC, to train at TPASC, the new athletics centre we share with the City of Toronto,” says Bruce Kidd, vice president U of T and interim principal.  “TPASC is an important investment in health, wellness and the enjoyment of sport in our community. The excitement of welcoming international calibre competitors and learning from their experience underscores the opportunities the Pan Am and Parapan American Games and this first-class facility bring to our campus and to the eastern GTA.”

While Synchro Canada is the first national group to train in the pools in the new multi-sport facility, Wheelchair Basketball Canada’s National Academy has been training at UTSC since 2013 and made the move to TPASC this fall along with the Canadian Sport Institute Ontario national high-performance sports centre and UTSC’s Department of Athletics and Recreation.
