This program is designed for swimmers aged at least 8 years old who have no previous synchro experience or who want to swim without competing in meets.Swimmers work on the Synchro Canada Star Award Program which offers progressive, step by step instruction and evaluation suitable for a variety of ages and abilities. Swimmers start with basic movements and move to more advance techniques as swimmers progress through the levels. Swimmers will learn all the fundamental sculls, basic figures, and be introduced to sequence/routine components in the early levels(Stars 1-10). They will then move onto the most challenging figures in the Superstar 1-7 levels. Swimmers generally move through 1-2 star levels a year in this program. Swimmers will be placed on teams where they will develop a routine that will be performed at the annual water show. Practices may consist of a warm up, cardiovascular exercises, flexibility training, as well as skill development and routines.
Prerequisites- Swimmers should be comfortable in deep water, able to swim 50m(2 lengths) without aids, and tread water for at least 1 minute. Swimmers also need to have the maturity and endurance levels to participate in 90 minute practices.
