Aquatica Synchro’s high performance program is for those athletes who want to compete at a national level and specialize in the sport of synchronized swimming. They have competed previously at the provincial/interprovincial level. Athletes are placed by the coaches according to their age and skill level. Aquatica Synchro offers 4 High Performance programs based on athlete’s age: 11-12, 13-15, Junior, and Senior.
High performance athletes participate at local, provincial, national, and sometimes international competitions or camps. Athletes at this level have opportunities to try out for Synchro Swim Manitoba Provincial Teams as well as Synchro Canada National Teams. Training hours increase as age levels increase.
Travel: Athletes at the 13-15, Junior and Senior level are required to travel to the National Qualifier event (or another if deemed appropriate by the coach), and their designated age group nationals if they qualify.
All 13-15, Junior and Senior teams competing at the national stream level, as well as the top 2 solos/duets in the province, travel to Qualifiers held in Quebec in March. Teams automatically qualify to go Nationals. Junior and Senior age group travel to Canadian Opens (COSSC) in May (Location TBD). 11-12 and 13 – 15 age group will compete at Espoir in June (Location TBD).
Athletes in the national stream will compete in Synchro Swim Manitoba Competitions in the 2017 – 2018 year. Please note these dates have not yet been set by Synchro Swim Manitoba. Generally, there is one competition in November, January, February, March and April.
