Who is GO
GO Capital Synchronized Swimming
Club was established in 2016 when three well established Ottawa
area synchronized swimming clubs (Ottawa Synchro, Gloucester
Synchro and Gloucester Capital Synchro) amalgamated. GO
Capital is a member of Synchro Ontario, the umbrella organization responsible
for synchronized swimming in Ontario.
GO Capital Synchro is a
not-for-profit, volunteer-board run synchronized swimming club
dedicated to providing opportunities for all athletes who love the
water, to train, compete and be active for life. We offer
programs ranging from recreation to a high performance, national
competitive stream and everything in between. For more

In addition to a dedicated group
of volunteers GO Capital Synchro also has a great team of dynamic
and well qualified coaches. The full-time Lead Coach of GO Capital
Synchro is Geneviève Beauregard-Ross.
What’s in a
GO Capital’s name and visual
identity reflect the history of the 3 amalgamated clubs, its place
in Canada and the principles of striving for excellence and
inclusion for all swimmers, at all ages and all abilities.
GO Capital was chosen as the
club’s name to reflect both the history and future for
synchronized swimming in Ottawa.
The use of the word
‘GO’ pays tribute to both Gloucester and Ottawa Synchro
by using the first letter from each clubs’ names to form the
GO also refers to Greater
Ottawa. With more than 200 swimmers in all streams of
synchronized swimming from recreational swimmers to high
performance national stream athletes, GO Capital has a place for
all swimmers in Greater Ottawa.
The use of the word Capital is
both a reference to the Club’s geographic location in the
heart of Canada’s National Capital Region and a reference to
Gloucester Capital, one of the three clubs that came together to
form GO Capital.
