National Competitive Programs

The Auroras' National Stream Competitive Program is for experienced athletes who want to compete at a national level and specialize in synchronized swimming. The Edmonton Aurora Synchronized Swim Club is the only club in northern Alberta to offer team training of synchronized swimming at the national level.  Athletes train all aspects of the sport in a team environment; improving their concept of commitment, respect, and team work.  Athletes at this level also receive regular coaching from National and Olympic coaches.

Focused on pursuing excellence, National Stream athletes compete at provincial and national competitions. At the final national championship many Aurora athletes have an opportunity to try out for provincial or national teams. In 2019, 1 member invited to the National Team training camp, and 4 members invited to the Provincial Team training camp.  National Stream athletes also qualify for scholarships at some universities.

To understand more about this level of swimming, see the Auroras Pathways.
