WELCOME TO THE WORLD OF SYNCHRO!

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. Practice begins in late April and continues through July.

Team Suits

Each synchro swimmer will need a solid black suit, nose clip, and a plain white cap. Swimmers will learn to knox their hair for routine performances. See below video on how to do this!

Aquacade

The Synchro team puts on an Annual Aquacade show and fundraiser 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 committment and teamwork.


Synchronized Swim Team - 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 (Valley Foothill Competitive Aquatics League) which consists of five teams including the Auburn Mermaids, Cordova Cordettes, Fulton-El Camino Stingrays, Davis Aquastarz (2005), and Sunrise Swans. The Stingrays captured the League Championship titles in 1987, 1988, 1989, 1991, 1994, 1996, 1997, 2002, 2007 and 2008!
