Get to know us a bit!
The Okotoks Synchro Sea Queens(OSSQ) is the only recreational synchronized swimming club in the MD of Foothills. Our motto is fun, fitness, and friendship! We serve swimmers from surrounding communities such as High River, Black Diamond, Turner Valley, as well as from Calgary. We are a short trip south of the "big" city. Our recreational centre provides a 6 lane lap pool, a 4 lane pool, a hot tub, and sauna facilities.
As a recreational program, we offer the advantage of a relaxed, fun environment, while still learning the skills needed for the synchronized swimming sport. We use the Synchro Canada Star Program. This program teaches swimmers how to learn progressively more difficult figures and synchronized swimming skills. The club members earn a new star pin as they complete each star level.
Our coaches use a variety of methods to increase skill level, as well as working on cardiovascular and endurance training. We start our season by placing our club members into age/skill appropriate groupings. Throughout the season these teams will learn new synchronized swimming figures and work on components of their routines. We finish up our year with the teams presenting their routines to friends and family at our annual water show.
