Program runs September to June, practices meet 2x/week.
Girls ages 8-12 who would like an introduction to synchronized swimming without the requirement of intense competition.
There will be an emphasis on teamwork and building confidence. Training together for a full year gives pre-team members the opportunity to form close friendships and to learn to perform a full-length routine. The Beginners will learn simple technical elements (“Novice” figures), participate in fun, low key association meets(optional), and perform in the YSS Synchro Annual Show. Beginners are welcome and girls with some synchro experience will also be challenged.
Program runs September to June, practices meet 3x/week.
The Intermediate Team is for girls of all ages (individual squads are formed by age) and is the perfect introduction to competitive synchronized swimming. The girls spend the fall learning basic skills (including more difficult technical figures) and the winter combining those skills into routines. In the spring they attend local competitions and can qualify to attend regional and zone competitions. They also perform in the YSS Synchro Annual Show. Increasing confidence, teamwork and having fun are the major goals of this group.
Program runs September to June, practices for age groups 12 & under, 13 & older, Junior & Senior meet 4-5x/week.
The Age Group team is for athletes who have moderate to significant prior Synchro experience (individual squads are formed by age and skill). The Age Group program is designed to build upon basic skills and teamwork, and offers swimmers a path to progressively more advanced skills and competitions. Age Group athletes perform much more complex figures (technical elements), National team tryout skills practice, compete in local meets, and can qualify to compete in regional, zone and national meets.
