Provincial Competitive Programs


Registration for 2023-2024 Season is now OPEN!

Aurora Provincial Competitive teams are organized into age groups. The earliest someone can compete according to Alberta Artistic Swimming (AAS) rules is 7 turning 8 in 2024. Each age group competes in a team routine and figures skills at competitions within the Province. The Jr/SR age group does not compete figures, instead they can participate in two routines. In Alberta, provincial level athletes are also referred to as Wildrose. 

Team routines are what most people see on TV - a routine with music in a minimum group size of 4 to a maximum of 10. This is the event where swimmers wear make-up, fancier suits, gel their hair up and wear a nose clip. Figures are skills that are competed individually in front of a panel of 3-5 judges who will flash a score between 0.25-9.75. Swimmers compete in 2-4 figures at each competition. In this event, swimmers wear black caps, white caps, nose clip and goggles. 

The next opportunity to join an Aurora competitive program is when registration opens for September 2024. 

First practice is end of August.

For more details about appropriate levels or more about the sport, see the Auroras Pathways and the Parent's Guide to Artistic Swimming.

* Swimmers may be on a mixed team of 2x a week and 3x a week swimmers depending on registrations. Alberta Artistic Swimming allows for mixed age groups teams. 

 


Swimmers enjoy team training and competition, including competing in individual figures skills, travelling to out-of-town meets, plus training other aquatic skills like swimming and diving. Swimmers gain a sense of achievement and team work as they have fun. 

Events

>Because artistic swimming is a team sport, swimmers are required to attend all events and may not miss practice two weeks prior to an event. Expect that the Friday of the Northern Lights Event, Rocky Mountain Qualifier and Wildrose will require attendance during the day or will require travel.<
