Squads

 

Whatever your age or ability, we have a squad for you!
 

As you learn and develop, you can progress through the squads at your own pace!

Synchro Lessons

Typically 30 mins per week training

This is where most swimmers start their synchro journey, learning Stages 8-10 in Synchronised Swimming


Lessons are available at most local authority Leisure Centre Pools, and can be booked via reception.​

Entry

You'll learn all the basics in an Entry squad, and develop your core synchro skills like 'skulling' and 'eggbeater'.
