CoPA Swimmers Selected for England Synchro Squads

CoPA are very proud to announce that our synchro swimmers Chloe and Natasha have been selected for 2 separate England national artistic swimming (synchro) squads.  After 3 phases of trials, their hard work and dedication to their training has been justly rewarded with Natasha making the England Junior squad and Chloe making the England Youth squad.  This is the first time CoPA has had swimmers on two national squads at the same time, and their success is due in no small part to the expertise and professionalism of head coach Fiona Haworth.  We are immensely proud of our swimmers and look forward to following their progress.
