Competitive Synchro Programs
Developing Champions for life!
Competitive synchronized swimming is a challenging sport that provides swimmers with many unique skills and opportunities that will last a lifetime.
Our athletes develop a high level of fitness, flexibility, grace, stamina, confidence and pride in their club, their team, themselves and their sport. As members of a team, swimmers also learn about commitment, sportsmanship, communication, time management and goal setting.
Not only do we build strong athletes, we build strong women for the future – we Develop Champions for life!
BSSC offers competitive programs with excellent coaches that promote a very positive, supportive and inclusive Team Culture at the Provincial, National, and Masters’ levels. Teams are based on Synchro Ontario’s age based system and Synchro Canada’s ability based system.
AGES: 10 & UNDER For young swimmers Ages 10 and under, previous synchronized swimming experience is not necessary. Athletes learn the basics of synchronized swimming, fundamental skills and are introduced to a competitive environment in Team routines and Figures skills. Teams participate in 4-6 competitions per season including 2 Club Watershows.
AGES: 11-12 For swimmers 12 and younger or new to competitive. Swimmers focus on greatly improving the basics of synchronized swimming with an emphasis on flexibility training, strength training and more sophisticated team routines. They also are introduced to mental training and higher level fitness training. Teams participate in 4-6 competitions per season including 2 Club Watershows.
Trying out for the BSSC High Performance 11-12 Team is also an opportunity.
AGES: 13-15 For swimmers aged 15 and younger (sometime higher level 11-12 your olds make these teams!). This category may be the most competitive! The routines become faster, more sophisticated, the training hours are longer, there is a higher level of commitment to the more advanced skills of synchronized swimming, fitness training, mental training, being competition ready. Teams participate in 4-6 competitions per season including 2 Club Watershows.
Trying out for the BSSC High Performance 13-15 Team is also an opportunity.
AGES: 16-20 For athletes that want to continue to participate competitively and improve their advanced skills while training less than they did in the 13-15 Age group. Make no mistake though they’re still very competitive!
Teams participate in 4-6 competitions per season including 2 Club Watershows.
BSSC Competitive also provides “extras” programming opportunities that include routines such as Solo’s, Duet’s and Combo Teams – additional to the team swims. Extras programming is offered specially by the Head Coach to eligible swimmers only after teams have been set for the season.
Extras programming does involve needing an above average synchro capability, a higher level of commitment and additional investment is required.
