Tauranga Synchro

Artistic swimming (formerly known as synchronised swimming) is a combination of swimming, dance and gymnastics. Swimmers perform a synchronised routine (either a solo, duet or team) in the water accompanied by music.

Artistic swimming develops advanced water skills, great strength, endurance, flexibility, grace, artistry and precise timing, as well as exceptional breath control when upside down underwater.

Who are we?

Tauranga Synchro has been in operation since 2007. We are an incorporated society governed by a constitution and we are reaping the benefits from all the hard work that has been put in by both the girls and parents. We are affiliated to the national body, Artistic Swimming NZand there are ten other clubs around the country. The sport is governed internationally by FINA.

Where can you find us?

Tauranga Synchro trains at Baywave Aquatic Centre, Mount Maunganui. See Classes and Fees page for more information.

Want to give it a try?

To try artistic swimming, you must be a competent swimmer, happy to swim underwater and confident out of your depth. Previous experience of gymnastics or dance is helpful, but not as important as enthusiasm and a positive attitude. Swimmers usually start anywhere between the ages of 7 and 11.

We offer a FREE trial lesson (Baywave entry applies). Contact us for details.
