Synchronized swimming is a unique combination of dance, gymnastics and swimming. Synchro athletes perform acrobatic routines in the water, perfectly timed with music and their teammates - all while never touching the bottom of the pool!
Amazing breath control, balanced strength, precise coordination, and mental toughness.
Creative music selection and interpretation, suit design, and choreography.
Synchronized movement, mutual success, trust, teamwork, and leadership development.
