ABOUT SYNCHRONIZED SWIMMING
Considered to be one of the most physically demanding Olympic sports, synchronized swimming also requires teamwork, artistry and creativity. Synchronized swimmers have the flexibility of a gymnast, the endurance of a long distance runner, the power of a speed swimmer, and the agility of a dancer. Synchronized swimming routines are approximately 3 minutes of heart pounding, non-stop motion, precise, rapid movements, powerful jumps, and acrobatic stunts — all to music and made to look effortless.

Sea Stars Synchro Basics: Participants age 6-12 learn the fundamentals of synchro, including sculling, kicking, introductory figures and routines, while improving flexibility, speed, endurance, and comfort in the water. Class participants meet for an hour one day a week in the 25y pool.
Sea Stars Pre-Team/Novice: Pre-team is for swimmers age 6-12 who have completed Synchro Basics and would like to develop intermediate synchronized swimming skills without the requirement of intense competition. Pre-team participants have the opportunity to participate in Shows and Exhibitions with the Competitive team. They might also have the opportunity to participate in local Novice-level competitions. This class meets one to two times a week through out the competitive season, which is September-May.
Summer Camps: Our week-long summer day camps are appropriate for all levels, including beginning athletes with no prior synchro experience, to our most experienced competitive athletes.
We offer several levels of competition.
Intermediate Programs: Intermediate swimmers compete in the 12 and Under and 13-15 age groups. The Intermediate level is an entry-level of competition and a stepping stone to more advanced levels of competition. Swimmers practice 2-3x a week and compete at local and one to two travel competitions including the Regional Championships.
Age Group: This level is for athletes who are committed to attend practices and competitions. Swimmers practice 3-6x a week. Swimmers compete in the 12 and Under, 13-15, 16-17 and 18-19 age groups at local, Regional, Zone and National competitions. Our most advanced swimmers also compete in Junior (age 15-18) and Senior (age 15+) level competitions. Carolina Synchro athletes who are qualified have participated in National Skills Competitions and All-Star Development Camps.
