Synchronised Swimming

What is synchro?

Synchronised swimming combines advanced swimming ability, flexibility, strength, stamina and creativity.  It is a highly technical sport which means it can be difficult but with a bit of determination and perseverance it is highly rewarding.

How does it work?

Synchronised swimming can seem like a complicated sport to those who are not directly involved in it.  These are the basics:

- Competitions are split into figures (each figure is a series of positions linked by transferring movements) and routines.  There are four categories of routines, solos, duets, teams (eight swimmers) and combination (includes elements of solo, duet and team with up to ten swimmers).

More information regarding synchronised swimming can be found here (www.swimming.org/synchro) and for regional events and courses, please click here (www.eastswimming.org).

- It allows swimmers to be creative when coming up with ideas for routines.
