Novice Competitive

Thunder Bay Synchro’s Novice Program offers swimmers the opportunity to progress the participant’s synchronized swimming skills over the entire season, from October to April, while having fun and building friendships. This group will be able to grow together as swimmers and team-mates as they develop their skills. The Novice Program is for swimmers aged 11 or over looking to move from the Recreational Program into the competitive stream for the first time. These swimmers will train twice a week at the Lakehead University Pool in Thunder Bay. Our Novice Program teaches young girls synchronized swimming fundamentals, such as, sculling, basic figures, and an introduction to putting their skills to music as a routine! No previous synchro experience is needed! Swimmers must however be:

  • comfortable in deep water
  • able to submerge while holding their breath
  • able to swim two lengths
  • able to tread water for 20 seconds

Novice swimmers perform at two Watershows each season, which are held in the Winter and Spring, participates in two local mock competitions, and one out of town competition in Winnipeg in April 2018. There are basic uniform requirements for Novice swimmers.
