Swimmers in the Provincial competitive program gain valuable training that is focused on enhancing their synchro skills, increasing flexibility, developing core strength, learning choreography and most importantly, working as a cohesive team. Teams will compete in 4-6 competitions throughout the season and 2-3 club water shows.  Athletes will learn life-long skills of discipline, commitment, pride, respect, self-esteem, and positive body image.  In addition, swimmers with also develop their leadership skills, work ethic and goal-setting skills.

No previous artistic swimming experience is necessary to join provincial competitive at the 10U level, although a commitment to the sport is required by all swimmers and parents in this program. Swimmers with no previous artistic swimming experience may be able to join the provincial competitive program in 11-12 and 13-15 pending an evaluation with the head coach.  All athletes are expected to attend practices, especially in the two weeks leading up to a meet or event.

All athletes in the Provincial program will be assessed and placed on teams that are age and skill appropriate. As we are a non-profit volunteer led club, there will also be a fundraising requirement for each athlete. 

Fees for Provincial Competitive can be paid in full upfront or monthly (September to April).  The $250 OAS registration fee is due before the first practice.  There may be additional fees for uniforms including club shirt, jacket, suit, and backpack.  Please reach out to info@guelphsynchroswim.ca for details.
