Novice & Intermediate Competitive Programs
These programs are designed for swimmers who want to participate in the full synchronized swimming experience. Novice competitive swimmers will learn basic technical elements and a full length routine. Intermediate competitive swimmers will also learn figures, team routine, and are eligible to swim small routines. The competition teams will participate in fun, local synchro meets. Emphasis will be placed on team work, friendship and confidence. Beginners and swimmers with synchro experience are welcome to participate on the competitive teams. Please contact the coaches for more information about our Competition Team.
Swimmers will learn figures and routines which they will swim before a panel of judges. The team will participate in local meets and clinics (minimal travel is required). Last year's meets were held in Norton, MA (Wheaton College), Worchester, MA (YWCA), Nashua, NH (Boys & Girls Club), Andover, MA (YMCA) and Cambridge, MA (War Memorial Recreational Center).
Novice swimmers will practice approximately 3.5 hours per week. Intermediate swimmers will practice approximately practice 4 to 4.5 hours per week. This season practices will be held on Monday and Wednesday evenings. Weekend practices are also held throughout the season. In addition, optional and mandatory strength and flexibility sessions will be planned each month.
** Changes to the practice schedule may be made based on pool availability. **
Strength and Flexibility Training
Competition swimmers will work on strength and flexibility throughout their season. This may occur during practice as well as during specifically designed dry-land sessions that will help swimmers meet individual and team goals. Swimmers will work with their coaches to develop home practice.
This upcoming season competition swimmers will partner with instructors at Etoile Dance & Yoga Studio in Pembroke. Sessions will focus on body awareness, alignment, and core strength through a combination of Ballet, Barre, Yoga and Strength/Conditioning work.
