Yesterday the world governing body for synchronised swimming (FINA) decided to change the name of the sport to ‘Artistic Swimming’. Many in the synchro community are upset at this re-naming of their sport without consultation and feel that the new name does nothing to describe the ‘synchronisation’ that forms the foundation of the sport, and neither does it reflect the extreme athleticism, power, strength, flexibility and endurance that has come to be synonymous with the sport. If you wish to voice your opposition to this change of name, please sign the petition below:
Just wanted to recognise your ongoing commitment to a great synchro website – we’d be lost without it!
SwimNorthwest are currently running their first Level 1 synchro coaching course at Stockport and swimmers are required for the practical sessions. We are therefore pleased to offer an opportunity for extra training sessions for any under 12 skill 1 or 2 swimmers to come for free sessions on Sat 17/12/16 between 12:00 to 14:00 and/or Sunday 18/12/16 between 12:20 to 14:00 at Stockport Grand Central leisure centre.
