CoPA at the National Championships 2018

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.

City of Preston Synchro Elite Squad

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.

Membership Fees

All swimmers should have received a sheet with 2018 fees.  Please can these be paid as soon as possible so that swimmers can be registered for 2018.  Swimmers not registered are not insured for training and will not be able to take grades or enter competitions.

Rhea – Synchro Swimmer of the Year!

Congratulations go to Rhea Howard who was awarded CoPA synchronised ‘Swimmer of the Year’ at the recent CoPA Christmas display event.  Rhea’s dedication and hard work has paid off this year with her qualifying to swim solo at every competitive event she has entered, winning a number of medals and ultimately being selected for the GB Synchronised Swimming Squad.
