Artistic swimming is a fun team sport for anyone who enjoys exploring movement and dancing in the water!
Artistic Swimming is considered the “sport that has it all”. Athletes have training in so many different sports and activities including; dance, diving, gymnastics, speed swimming, water polo, pilates and yoga, running, musical development, acting, and even stage-performance! Whether your child would like to experience the joys of the sport in a non-competitive recreational atmosphere or have the opportunity to wear a sparkly swim suit and perform with a team at a competition, GO Capital Artistic Swimming offers artistic swimming programs perfect for all levels.
Our non-competitive, Recreational Program is designed for swimmers with little or no artistic swimming experience who wish to learn the sport or those looking for an alternative to traditional swimming lessons.
The GO Capital Novice Program is designed to introduce competitions to the athletes. From a commitment and skill perspective, it is a step up from the Recreational programs.
GO Capital's Provincial Competitive and High Performance programs are based on Long-term Athlete Development (LTAD) 'Train to Train' and 'Training to Compete' stages. Athletes develop their stamina (endurance), strength, speed and flexibility, while gaining more advanced artistic swimming skills. Mental training is introduced and developed, including goal setting and evaluation, visualization and competition preparation. All competitive athletes train together in a high quality, supportive training environment where coaches encourage teamwork and excellence. These programs will systematically teach the foundations of technically sound and artistically innovative artistic swimming while also developing important life skills that will be of benefit to all athletes.
Athletes With A Disability
Water equals accessibility! Whether it is for competition or for therapy, artistic swimming boosts self - esteem, builds strength and stamina, and enhances the overall quality of life for people with disabilities. The Go Capital Artistic Swimming Club offers two streams of programming for Athletes with Disabilities (AWD) – one for physical challenges, and the other for cognitive challenges. The key criteria for participating in the program is that if the participant can swim, they can try artistic swimming.
