2023-2024 Team


The Artistic Swimming Club (formerly known as Synchronized Swimming) accommodates both competitive and novice-level swimmers who wish to compete at the university level in 2 or 3 annual competitions.

Experienced artistic swimmers have the opportunity to continue a sport they love at a fun and manageable level. Novice team members have the opportunity to learn a new sport right from the basics.

We practice hard but also have loads of fun within our supportive and inclusive community! See below for additional information about practices, contact information, social media links and more!

What Participants Have Said...

"I've been a part of the Artistic Swim Club throughout my undergraduate degree. It has been a great way to stay active and make friends while continuing to train and compete in the sport I grew up loving. I'm so thankful for my artistic swim family and have loved to see it grow over years." - Grace Ohrling
