Synchronized Swimming is a water sport that combines swimming skills with the artistry of gymnastics and ballet.
"Synchro" emphasizes precise teamwork and individual skill and strength in an atmosphere of fun and friendship, all put to music. Swimmers of all abilities, from 5-18 years old, can participate. Each swimmer will learn basic figures and swimmers will try out to be in routines which compete at championships. Swimmers can also elect to be in a routine for our Aquacade show at the end of the summer. Practices are offered 5 days a week starting in late April through July.
Each synchro swimmer will need a solid black suit and a plain white cap. The TYR Maxback is recommended, but any solid black suit will do. Check our team store for some options.
The Synchro team puts on an annual Aquacade show towards the end of the season at Cottage Pool. Aquacade is open to the public and gives the swimmers an opportunity to show off their winning routines and is a celebration of a summer of difficult teamwork.
A Little Stingray History
The Stingray Synchronized Swim Team began in 1968 with the Sacramento Area Synchronized Swimming League. During the 1970’s (lacking recorded history) the Stingrays joined VFCAL which consists of five teams including the Auburn Mermaids, Cordova Cordettes, Fulton-El Camino Stingrays, Roseville Aqua-bunnies and Sunrise Swans. In 2005, the Davis Aquastarz joined VFCAL and sadly in 2008 the Roseville Aqua-bunnies retired their team. The Stingrays captured the League Championship titles in 1987, 1988, 1989, 1991, 1994, 1996, 1997, 2002, 2007 and 2008! Ok so we are still a great team without winning the League Championships in awhile! LOL
