It was an action packed weekend as CoPA travelled to Nottingham to compete in the National Synchronised Swimming Championships 2018. Although there were no medals this time, our girls did themselves and CoPA proud with creditable placings in this highest level of domestic synchro competition in the UK. Results are as follows:
- Rhea & Leah finished 9th in the free duet
- Rhea finished 11th in her tech solo
- Rhea finished 15th in her free solo
- The CoPA free combination team (Fiona, Isabel, Izzy, Leah, Olivia, Rhea and Tilly) finished 10th
Great work girls!
Videos of the routines can be seen here for logged in CoPA members.
There will be no synchro training on Friday 20th April or Sunday 22nd April due to coaching commitments at the National Championships. Water Polo training is on as normal.

Well done girls!
A squad of between six and ten synchronised swimmers will be selected for additional training. Swimmers must already be attending all current club sessions, have a good work ethic, be self-motivated, be prepared to take on extra individual training and be full of enthusiasm! Current attendance, attitude, results during 2017 and performance in the North West trials will contribute towards selection.
If selected there will be an additional monthly fee of approximately £15 to cover pool hire.
If you are interested and would like to be considered please see Fiona.
