What we do
Artistic swimming, formerly known as Synchronised Swimming, is a strenuous and skilful sport. It is essentially athletic movements performed in water and choreographed to music. Artistic Swimmers use core strength and swimming skills to perform twists and lifts an figures, whilst in time with their fellow swimmers and the music.
Swimmers train on land as well as in water. The land training sessions are designed to build the core muscles, develop stretching and fitness abilities which maximise the performance in water.
