World class Synchronized Swimming
in SF Bay Area
What is Synchro?
Synchronized Swimming, also called Artistic Swimming, is an Olympic sport that combines dance, gymnastics, and swimming. Together in teams, duets, or as a single swimmer, athletes perform choreographed routines set to music that demonstrate their strength, flexibility, aerobic endurance and synchronization. It is a challenging, but rewarding and beautiful sport.
A synchronized swimmer builds endurance, strength, power, speed, agility, and flexibility through balanced training. It takes years to produce a world-class synchronized swimmer, but swimmers at any level can enjoy and develop in our sport.
We have programs for athletes of various ages and differing skill levels. We have highly committed swimmers and families in our award winning competitive program, and we have recreational swimmers in our Novice/Intermediate program who loves synchro, working in a team and competing, but feels that the competitive program is a too large commitment. Start synchro by trying synchro in one of our summer camps or lessons pack.
