Synchro Spirit


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! Practices are typically 3 evenings a week! See below for additional information about practices, contact information, social media links and more!
