(..formerly known as St Austell Synchro Squad)
Kernow Artistic Swimming Club (KASC) is the only registered Artistic Swimming club in Cornwall and Devon. We are a friendly and welcoming club offering training to all ages from 6 (development group) through to over 18 (masters). We are a volunteer-run group with our qualified coaches offering their time and expertise free of charge. All our coaches and poolside helpers are DBS checked and receive regular safeguarding training. Artistic Swimming is a mixture of swimming, dance, and gymnastics. It develops strength, coordination, breath control, musicality, and teamwork. It is a fun and exciting way to keep fit and develop new skills. The club also enters regional and national competitions for those who want to compete. All swimmers and abilities are welcome to come for a free trial. Membership includes fees to cover Swim England registration, insurance and pool hire.
We are an inclusive club who welcome all ages, genders and abilities.

Co-op Local Cause
Last year we were nominated as a local cause for co-op. We are very grateful for the huge support and the pool equipment this allowed us to purchase.
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, spins, turns, figures, and acrobatics. All 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.
