With music, nose clips and big smiles, we coach all underwater ballerinas how to sync and swim with Synquatics, our artistic swimming programme! Artistic swimming is a hybrid form of swimming, dance and gymnastics, combining arm and leg movements to music in the water. Artistic swimming demands water strength and requires great skills; endurance, flexibility, grace, artistry and precise timing. Also, exceptional breath control is important when upside down doing movements under the water. Synquatics is all about creating a supportive team environment through the involvement of all teammates, parents and coaches, which leads to swimmers who are committed to their swimming and enjoy challenging themselves to perfect new skills. Through high quality professional training that focuses on technique, we aim is to create strong competitive artistic swimmers and teams. Swimmers can compete as a solo, duet, trio, team and combo.
I love artistic swimming because I get to be creative and do what I like which is performing. I love how we look in the water and I think it’s very beautiful. I really like swimming and dance, so synquatics at Hamilton Aquatics is just the perfect mix for me.- Rebecca
