Question: My daughter isn’t a particularly strong swimmer. Can she still join your group? Answer: If your daughter has had limited exposure to swimming, fear not. We’ll take care of teaching her to swim. In fact, we’ll make it enjoyable for your daughter to learn to swim. Our beginner programs assume no prior formal swimming training and follow the recognized Star System.
Question: Synchronized swimming seems like a big commitment. Answer: Synchro is the ultimate team sport. Each member plays an important role on the team and so it is important that the swimmer and parent commit to the entire training and competition schedules. This may seem daunting but the benefits far outweigh the negatives. The girls gel as a team and learn to work together. Commitment, team work, time management are only a few skills they will learn.
Question: I’m not sure if my daughter will enjoy the sport. What if she wants to quit? Answer: We pride ourselves in providing a positive experience for all beginners. That being said, we understand that synchronized swimming may not be for everyone. If your daughter decides not to continue before Dec. 15th, we’ll gladly refund from January to May fees. If your daughter decides to not continue after Dec. 15th, all fees for the season are non-refundable.
Question: My daughter is a very strong swimmer. Does she need to start at the very beginning? Answer: Not necessarily so. Depending on your daughter’s age and swimming skill level, she may be able to join a more advanced program during her first year. The coaches will assess your daughter’s skill and place her in the program that is best suited for her skill level.
