For safety reasons participants MUST be able to swim 25m unassisted. (This is not a learn to swim program) Could also have participated in AquaGo or another beginner synchro program. Open to girls and boys ages 7-12 years of age. Learn basic synchronized swimming skills like eggbeater, going upside down and sculling. At the end of the week children will have a mini routine to show off. The routine will be participant driven to make sure everyone feels comfortable swimming to the music.
In Canada, many people seem to think artistic swimming is only for girls. That is simply not true. There are many high-level male athletes competing on the world stage. In fact, participating in artistic swimming helps further water skills that other water sports require. We are experts on floating, eggbeater, going upside down and using hands to maneuver through the water. These are all important skills that will give participants an edge in other water sports. In artistic swimming you get to practice many of the skills listed above by using music and creativity. Music can be heard above the water and in the water.
Participants also will work on flexibility on land using safe training techniques learned through Alixa Flexibility training. Above all, our coaches’ job will be to make sure you child has lots of fun while improving their water skills.
If you have any questions reach out to head coach.
