Pre-Competitive Programs


OSSC’s Pre-Competitive program allows swimmers to improve their swimming abilities, flexibility, and fundamental synchro skills, while introducing them to the competitive side of synchronized swimming.

Each practice includes both training on land and in the water. Our Pre-Competitive program is designed as a stepping stone to move into either our Competitive or High Performance programs. Swimmers can develop the necessary synchro skills over one or two years, so that they can confidently transition into the next level.

Our Pre-Competitive program begins at the end of September 2020 and runs through to May 2021. There is no training over major holidays or March Break. Athletes will have the opportunity to compete at 2-3 competitions over the course of the year, and they will also participate in our Holiday and Spring Water Shows.
