History

The Saskatoon Aqualenes Synchronized Swimming Club was formed in 1973 under the direction of Karen (Clark) Dumas. For the first ten years, the Club was sponsored by the Saskatoon Optimist Club and was known as the Optimist Aqualenes. In 1983 the sponsorship from the Bridge City Cosmopolitan Club was accepted. Our name changed to the "Bridge City Cosmo Aqualenes." In 1996 we became the Saskatoon Aqualenes Synchronized Swimming Club ("SAQ").
