  • Swimming Team

    The program is designed to provide a team environment that fosters growth in competitive swimming by improvement of swimming stroke and technique. Workouts are designed to build endurance, efficient strokes, starts, turns and finishes are part of the team focus.

  • Artistic Swimming (Synchronized Swimming) Team

    USA Synchro has changed the name to Artistic Swimming and will no longer be recognized as Synchronized Swimming.
    Designed to introduce young swimmers to competitive Artistic Swimming. It’s a hybrid form of swimming, dance, and gymnastics, consisting of swimmers performing a synchronized routine of elaborate moves in the water, accompanied by music. It demands good water skills, strength, endurance, flexibility, good breathing control when underwater, and precise timing.
