Synchronized Swimming is a team water sport, introduced to the Olympic Games in 1984. Synchro competitions are comprised of the team, combo, duet, and solo events. To perform a 3 minute, choreographed routine, synchronized swimmers must possess incredible endurance, flexibility, split-second timing, power, and mental aptitude. Synchro combines the best parts of swimming, gymnastics, and dance into a unique and beautiful sport.
Synchro can also be a lifelong commitment and source of exercise for many because of the low impact nature of swimming and the focus on stretching and flexibility. Many Sea Sprites alumnae have returned to the sport as masters swimmers or coaches and have passed on their passion for the sport to younger swimmers.
