Try Synchro (All Ages) 

The Try Synchro Program is an introductory program developed to introduce swimmers to this unique and challenging sport.  The focus of the program is to learn about the fun of synchronized swimming in a team.  It's a low-cost, low-pressure way to become familiar with synchronized swimming and to learn what it's all about.

This is an eight week program that runs in fall, winter, and spring.  Athletes train one day per week, either on Sunday evening 3:45-5:00, Monday evening 5:45-7:00, Thursday evenings 5:45-7:00 and Saturday morning 8:45-10:00.

The fee is $195 for each eight week session. We run a session in the fall, winter, and spring.

Winter Season Starts January 2021

Spring Season Starts March 2021

For Try Synchro, the athlete should be comfortable and capable of swimming in deep water for several minutes at a time.

Synchro Starters (7+)  

The Synchro Starters Program is a Recreational introductory program designed to bridge the gap between Try Synchro and Novice and/or 10 & under.  The focus of the program is to build upon the strong basic skills learned in Try Synchro program and prepare our athletes for a more advanced novice recreation or the competitive programs.

This programs runs for January to May.  Athletes train one day a week (Saturdays) for 2 hours.

The fee is $185 a month from January to May.

Season Starts January 2021 

For Synchro Starters, the athlete should be comfortable and capable of swimming in deep water for longer periods of time.

Novice (Born 2009 or Earlier) 

The Novice program is for those that want the fun and excitement of participating in competitions, but without the financial and time commitment of the full competitive program. The program runs from September to June, two days (4 hours) per week; Sunday 3:45-6:00 and Thursday 5:15-7:00.

Athletes will work on a routine throughout the year and will travel throughout southern Ontario to perform the routine with novice athletes from many other clubs. They will wear a special themed custom-made routine swim suit at all events.

The fee is $225 a month from October to June.

The novice program starts on October 17th 2019.

10 & Under Program (Born 2010 or Later) 

In Brant, athletes aged 10 years and younger (born in 2009 or later) will have two options when they register. If they are looking for an introductory program they can register for TRY SYNCHRO, the traditional 8-week program. If the athlete and their family feel like they’re looking for something more they can register for the 10&Under Program. This program is run very much like a traditional "novice" program. With the new guidelines in place for athletes it makes the most sense to have all the athletes under 10 training together.  This option is also the one that provides the least amount of pressure emotionally for this age group.

The 2020-2021 schedule for the 10&Under Program will be:

  • Sundays 1:30pm – 4:30pm (one hour in dance studio, two hours in the water)
  • Wednesdays 5:15pm-7:30pm
  • 1st Saturday on the month 8:45am-11:00am

With the new structure set out by the province, athletes in a 10&Under program will still attend almost the same number of events as the Novice Competitive. However, there are several benefits to athletes being in the 10&Under program rather than novice:

They will be registered with other athletes of a similar level of physical and emotional development
Program designed specific to their age group
Practicing with an age group and team that the athletes will progress with through the years, forming team relationships
Cross training in other land activities including dance and flexibility instruction
Coaching staff with advanced training

Competitive

Athletes over the age of 10 (born 2010 or earlier) have the option to join TRY SYNCHRO, Novice Competitive, or Competitive based on the recommendation of the coach in consultation with the family.

We have specific programs for the following age groups:

  • 11-12 Year Old 
  • 13-15 Year Old
  • 16-20 Year Old

We offer 1-on-1 instruction for athletes with unique abilities with fantastic coaches in the sport of synchronized swimming. Athletes have the opportunity to swim in club watershow or even compete in regional events if interested. No experience is required.

Masters (21+)
