Dal Synchro offers artistic swimming programs for any athlete currently registered in an accredited university-level degree in Halifax. We welcome students of all skill levels who are confident in the pool - from complete beginner to experienced synchro swimmers!
As a Tier-2 sports club with Dalhousie University, we offer both competitive and recreational programs for Dal students and Dalplex members. Our competitive teams compete in the Canadian University Artistic Swimming League (CUASL) with teams from universities all across Canada.
The experienced program is made up of swimmers that have competed in synchro provincially, nationally or internationally after the age of 12, prior to attending University. The experienced team typically attends 3 meets every season. Water and dry land practices are held at least three times a week, for a total of 8 hours of practice per week.
The novice program welcomes strong swimmers who are new to synchro to join a team, create a routine, and learn and develop synchronized swimming skills. Novice swimmers are also able to compete provincially and/or nationally throughout the season. Water and dry land practices are held at least twice a week, for a total of 5 hours of practice per week.
