The program will run all year and will allow young swimmers the chance to learn new skills, improve their swimming ability, learn a routine, and may compete at regional competitions (with other younger swimmers) and will participate in the club watershow.
The novice program is a beginner competitive program which is an introduction to synchronized swimming for swimmers who are 8-12 years of age.
