Trainee Sessions are classes for those who are brand new to synchronized swimming (now known internationally as 'Artistic Swimming') ages 5 and up.
Spring and summer sessions are designed to feed into our year-round program that starts mid-September each year.
Trainee Sessions 1,2,3,4:
-June, July, August, September
-Four to Five weeks long
-Monday, Tuesday, and Thursdays
-5:00-6:30 pm at the Clarke Memorial Swim Center at Heather Farm.
-The sessions are timed so that your swimmer can still participate in summer rec swim team programs.
-Price is $275 for Sessions 1,2,4 and $375 for session 3 (because it includes performing in our annual Fall Show). All attendees are also required to have a United States Artistic Swimming (USAAS) trial membership of $19.
Athletes who participate in at least Trainee Session #3 are eligible to swim in our iconic Fall Swim Show, which runs over four nights from Thursday through Sunday, Labor Day weekend. Athletes who participate in the swim show session will get to keep the swim costume designed for them for the show.
**To participate in Trainee Sessions, swimmers must be comfortable in deep water and able to swim 50 yards(2 lengths of the pool) unassisted.**
**All dates are subject to change depending on the current COVID-19 regulations. WCA will take all precautions possible for the safety of each participant including wearing a mask when not in the water and participants will maintain a distance of 6-10ft. Each session will have a max of 12 participants. Interested participants beyond this amount will be wait-listed, and we will do our best to form a second class on possibly different days/times. Please email Kristen: [email protected] with any questions.**
