Covid19 Announcement

We hope you are all keeping healthy and safe at this unprecedented time.  We, the committee, want to extend our support to our swimmers and their families.  If you find yourself locked down with symptoms and need supplies, please let us know and we will work as a team to get things to you.  Similarly if you are feeling fed up and need emotional support, get in touch by email, FaceBook or phone and we will be here to chat with you, and our swimmers, to keep spirits up.
As it is now clear that this situation will not be changing any time soon, and sessions are postponed indefinitely, please postpone or cancel your Standing Orders for ongoing fee.  Please feel free to leave your payments in place if you are happy to support the club in a fundraising context, however we cannot commit to offering any additional sessions on return for these payments.
Please keep watching your emails and the FaceBook page.  We hope to have a ‘rustic, in progress’ website up and running soon so that we can share routine music, videos etc with the swimmers.  Also please note the new email addresses we are using and make sure they don’t get sent to spam!
Please keep following the guidelines to stay well and we look forward to when we can all be back together again.

What we do

Artistic swimming, formerly known as Synchronised Swimming, is a strenuous and skillful 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.
