Are you interested in Synchronised Swimming?

Can you imagine swimming for up to five minutes while performing acrobatics, holding your breath, looking graceful and having to keep in time to the music or your fellow athletes? No? Well this is what is eventually expected in the sport of synchronised swimming!

Synchronised Swimming used to be known as ‘water ballet’. Routines are essentially athletic movements performed in water and choreographed to music. Routines can be swum as solos, duet, trio or as a team from 4 - 10 swimmers. Synchronised Swimming is a very strenuous and skillful sport requiring both strength and flexibility to perform the routines, as well as rhythm and flair to synchronise and interpret the music. Working together with a team or partner, performance and showing creativity are essential skills. Why not try it out at either Edinburgh or Fife.

District competitions

Posted in Synchro

Each year there is an Inter District competition, for which synchronised swimmers from the region join forces to compete against the West and North districts.

In 2018 this competition was held in Aberdeen on 24 March.

14 swimmers represented the East District and all performed really well.

Lucy was the only swimmer from the East in the 12&under category and won bronze in figures and solo.

The East had a full team for the 13-15 category and picked up gold in every event. Niamh won the figures, with Cara second. Niamh won the solo. Cale and Niamh won the duet and the team also placed first. Congratulations to them all.

-------

In 2017 this competition was held on 25 March.

The East had a very successful start to the synchro year, winning both overall trophies in the Inter District competition at the RCP on Saturday.

Sara won the Skill 1/2 figures with Cale second.  Niamh won the Skill 3 figures. The Skill 1/2 duet of Cale and Cara were a very close second, being only 0.27 behind the winners. There was a bit of drama when it was revealed that the East Skill 1/2 team scored exactly the same as the West team. However, following the rules of the competition, the East team were awarded the win as they had the higher technical merit mark.

Overall the East Skill 1/2 team were awarded the Shell Oil trophy and the 3/4/5 team were awarded the Elizabeth Hamilton trophy.

Congratulations to all who were involved with the championships and a great big thanks to all the volunteers on the day.
