How does it all work?

PRE-JUNIOR TEAM(S)
There is no age restriction for this category nor will there be any official “try outs”. In order to participate however, individuals must be in at least aquaquest level 5 and be able to tread water in the deep end for a minimum of 2 minutes without coming to the side. The pre-junior team is for girls who are new to the sport of synchronized swimming and who wish to get a feel for competition and commitment.

They will be required to purchase a bathing suit, which in the past has cost about forty dollars.

JUNIOR TEAM(S)
This team is typically for girls with previous synchronized swimming experience. Being on the junior team requires about a 5 hour time commitment per week plus extra practices around competition time.

Participants are expected at all practices and will be required to inform the coach of any absence. Participants will be required to purchase a team bathing suit which in the past has cost about fifty dollars.

Ideally, there are 8 individuals on the team. The NAA requires that each junior team perform specific elements. Individuals wishing to be on the junior team will be taught and evaluated on the following elements:

  • Layout-tub-ballet leg-back tuck
  • Kick pull kick switch
  • Circle pattern
  • Layout-sailboat-ballet leg-flamingo
  • Inverted tuck position-heron
  • Side flutter
  • Splits

The duet and solo will be chosen based on the same criteria. Naturally, partaking in a second routine requires an additional time commitment on behalf of the swimmer.

SENIOR TEAM(S)
This swimmer is the more experienced and mature swimmer, one who has done synchro in the past. At this level, the swimming is more intricate, elaborate, and complicated.

It is physically more demanding and requires about a 5 hour per week time commitment plus additional practices around competition time. Participants are expected at every practice and will be required to notify the coach of any absence.

Individuals wishing to be on the senior team will be taught and then evaluated on the following elements:

  • Double arm boost
  • Front pike pull in
  • Line position
  • Layout-sailboat-ballet leg-tuck-crane
  • Kick pull kick sequence
  • Split walkout
  • Front pike lift to heron
  • Ballet leg combination
  • Vertical leg boost
  • Rise to heron-join to vertical
  • Double arm egg beater

The duet and solo will be chosen based on the same criteria. Naturally, partaking in a second routine requires an additional time commitment on behalf of the swimmer.
