We practice hard but also have loads of fun within our supportive and inclusive community! Practices are typically 3 evenings a week! For additional information please contact or refer to our social media pages linked below!

What Participants Have Said...

“I joined the UoG Synchro club my final year of University, with no previous experience in Synchronized swimming. I not only learned an amazing new sport, but I met a whole new amazing group of girls because of it. Every one of the girls helped me learn the new sport as well as include me as though I had been a part of the team for years. I couldn’t imagine university without it now.”

— Emily Bonwick, Novice Swimmer/Student

I swam with the University of Guelph Synchro club for all four years of school and my Guelph experience wouldn’t have been the same without it. I have had experiences I wouldn’t have had otherwise and have made friends that will stay with me long after I graduate.

— Emily Vance, Competitive Swimmer/Student
