Synchronised swimming (also referred as artistic swimming) is a combination of swimming, dance, and gymnastics with swimmers performing a synchronised routine (either solo, duets, or teams) of elaborate moves in the water to music.
Why is it good for me?
Synchronised swimming improves water skills, builds strength, endurance, flexibility, grace, as well as breath control when upside down underwater. A great option for those who perhaps aren’t as comfortable participating in the more contact types of sports. Socialising, team bonding & lasting friendships are a big part of any sport and Synchronised swimming is no exception.
How much will it cost me?
Joining a club will have a membership fee that will vary club to club. It is best to contact a club in your area to find out more information on what it will cost. Some clubs will offer free trial lessons so girls can see if it the sport for them.
What do I need to start?
A great attitude, a swim suit & the ability to swim a minimum of one standard length, without stopping, of freestyle, backstroke and breaststroke. Above all, new swimmers need to be confident in deep water.
