Free team routine – CoPA team (Lola, Marisa, Natasha and Rachel): 8th
There were 67 competitors in the 12 & under age group and 179 competitors in the 13-15 age group. Dependent upon their figures scores, only the top 12 swimmers qualified to swim solo. There were a total of 18 clubs swimming in the team event. We are naturally very proud of our swimmers!
CoPA is very proud to announce that synchro swimmer Natasha has been invited to join the England Youth synchronised swimming squad for 2020 following successful trials last weekend. Natasha trialled alongside 50 of the top athletes in the country in her age category and was amongst the top 20 who were selected.
Congratulations Natasha and we are excited to follow your progress!

It was a big day on Friday for CoPA’s synchro swimmers Chloe, Evie, Lola and Natasha as they took part in the synchro Beacon Games in Aldershot to represent the North West region. The girls were part of the North West’s Beacon Squad – the first stage of the England Talent programme for younger swimmers – and the regional team also included swimmers from City of Salford and Stockport synchronised swimming clubs.
The girls worked incredibly well as a team and their efforts were rewarded as CoPA swimmer Evie took a bronze medal for her individual score in the 13-15 age group category. The NW Beacon team also finished third overall with a score of 56.27, less than a point behind the overall winners, Walsall Beacon.
An outstanding effort and great result – well done to all our NW Beacon swimmers.
