Intermediate Teams

Intermediate Synchro Stars

The intermediate team is the perfect introduction to competitive synchronized swimming. The girls spend the fall learning basic skills and the winter combining those skills into two routines. In the spring they attend four competitions. Increasing confidence and teamwork and having fun are the major goals  of this program.

Practice Commitment: 3 days per week

Prerequisites: For strong swimmers. Coach evaluation required.

* Please note that your child's age-group is determined by FINA Rules and is the age she will be on December 31, 2017. This is because we are preparing for the 2017 competitive season. Thus, it is possible that a girl who is 9 at registration time in August 2016 will sign up for the 11/12 intermediate team if she has a late birthday (September-December).

12-Week Trial of the Intermediate Team: (September - November)

In the fall, a 12-week trial of the intermediate team is available to swimmers who would like to try the program before committing to a full year. Participants attend all intermediate team practices but pay only for the first 12 weeks. At the end of the 12-week trial, they may elect to join the intermediate team or the pre-team for a pro-rated fee.

Practice Commitment: 3 days per week

Prerequisites: For strong swimmers. Coach evaluation required.

Cost: $778 for members. $828 for non-members

 

2016-2017 Season Registration Information:

Past participants in the New Canaan YMCA synchro program (classes, camps, pre-team and intermediate team) will be offered priority registration in August 2016. They will receive registration packets via email during early August. Please email Valerie at vjolibois@newcanaanymca.org if you are a past program participant and you do not receive a registration packet.
 
Registration opens to new program participants in September 2016, on a first come, first served basis. Most of our new swimmers begin on pre-team, but some are placed directly on the intermediate team. Girls with previous synchro experience (e.g. at a summer club) or an extensive background in competitive swimming, dance, gymnastics or diving are more likely to go straight onto the intermediate team. Girls who are 11 and older are also likely to go directly into intermediate, as their increased maturity allows them to learn new skills faster than younger beginners.
 
If your daughter is considering joining the New Canaan YMCA Aquianas and would like to be considered for the intermediate team, please contact Valerie Jolibois at 203-966-4528 ext.173 or vjolibois@newcanaanymca.org to schedule a free trial class/evaluation.
