Aqua Giggles (born in 2012, 2013, 2014)                                                                                                                Register Here


The Aqua Giggles program is for the five to seven year old. At the FUNdamentals stage, children learn the basics of Synchro and have fun in the process. They learn that water is an ideal place for creative play – a world where they can float, fly, flip, twist and dream. We will provide a safe and stimulating environment where your child is introduced to all fundamental movement skills and begin to build overall motor skills. Once per week, children will spend ½ hour on land working on stamina, speed and suppleness (flexibility) followed by one hour of skill based programming in the water.

General Objectives

  • Aim to have fun at every aspect of learning and swimming
  • Introduce creative play in the water (with and without music)
  • Focus on the development of basic movement skills and motor skills (the ABCs of Agility, Balance, Coordination, and Speed) prior to introducing synchro specific skills
  • Provide the opportunity for your child to participate in skill-based fun water shows

For athletes new to the sport of Synchronized Swimming, we offer the opportunity to learn with Synchro Canada’s STAR Program. STAR consists of 12 skill levels starting with the basics and progressing through to complex figures. SAQ groups athletes according to their age and swimming ability into “Recreational” teams. They will learn a relaxed progression of synchro skills without the high intensity of competition. As the year progresses, athletes will also learn to perform a team routine. Since synchro programs involve mainly deep-water swimming, parents should ensure their athlete has a Red Cross Swim Kids Level 4 badge or the equivalent. Athletes must be comfortable swimming in the deep end of the pool. If the program does not meet the participant’s swimming ability, the Head Coach will contact the parents to make a suitable plan.

Athletes have one lesson per week, lasting 1 ½ hours. They attend one competition and the SAQ Water Show. The recreational programming starts mid - September and runs until the end of April.

This program is intended for retired competitive swimmers, Rec swimmers with experience, or new to synchronized swimming with a strong swimming background. We want our athletes to lead all-around active and healthy lives. The Active for Life Stage (long term athlete development) focuses on enabling athletes to make a smooth transition from their competitive careers to life-long physical activity and participation in sport. Whether athletes choose to continue synchro as Rec or Masters swimmers or as a coach or judge, the skills they learn in Synchro will help them succeed in whatever they choose.

This once a week training program focuses on maintenance of basic stamina, strength, speed, flexibility and synchro skills.
