Synchronized swimming is an artistic sport where a team, duet or soloist swims a choreographed routine to music. Synchro is a chance for children of all ages to improve their strength, endurance and flexibility in the water, all while having fun.
The Heights synchro program is all-inclusive, meaning that anyone who wishes to participate will be placed on one of our many teams. The synchro program at Heights is renowned for being one of the largest in ALPS, and it has always played a large role in the Heights experience. While everyone is encouraged to participate, we ask that each athlete be comfortable in deep water and be capable of learning a routine.
Synchro practices are held Monday through Friday, with additional practices at the coaches’ discretion. Attendance at practice is MANDATORY; synchro is a team sport, and though it is very fun, it requires hard work and dedication from every member of each team.
Nearing the end of the summer, ALPS hosts 3 large synchro competitions: Solos and Duets, Summer Synchro Meet and Team Finals. Participants should be sure not to schedule their vacations the week of and the week prior to the competition. This ensures that every team member is present at each has a good knowledge of the routine.
Customized bathing suits will be purchased for each team, ranging between $50-$75. However, there will be fundraising events throughout the summer to help bring down the cost. It is mandatory for every synchro swimmer to purchase a bathing suit.
