KTSC offers opportunities for swimmers to develop additional routines as soloists, duets, trios, and combos. Unless there is no suitable team for a swimmer, solos, duets, trios and combos are considered additional routines in that they are developed in addition to their team’s routine. (The ability to accommodate requests for additional routines is subject to factors including, but not limited to, the availability of coaches and pool time.) Swimmers interested in additional routines should indicate their interest on the registration form. Coaches will assess swimmers at the start of the swim season to determine if additional routines are appropriate and to identify appropriate partners or teammates if applicable. Following this, swimmers will meet with the Head Coach to discuss expectations and to determine their specific training schedule. Additional fees apply for all additional routines.
Splash Bash Solos, Duets, and Trios
Swimmers in all KTSC programs can request opportunities to prepare additional routines as soloists, duets, and trios to be presented at KTSC’s Splash Bash Swim Show.
Normally one 1-2 hour practice per week with the structure of practices to be determined. Specific practice schedules will be determined following registration.
Swimmers aged 13 & over may apply to develop a solo routine to compete at invitational, regional (including qualifying), and provincial meets. Swimmers aged 11-12 years old may apply to swim a solo for the 12 & Under Trillium meets.
Swimmers may apply to swim in a duet with a swimmer within their age group.
Swimmers may apply to swim in a free combination routine, or “combo”, with other swimmers in the competitive program. Combo routines are often longer than other routines and allow the opportunity to feature the skills of the different athletes on the team. A minimum of six swimmers is recommended.
*Additional competitive routines are available only for those swimmers already competing with KTSC’s 11-12, 13-15, Junior, or Senior teams. (Additional competitive routines are not available for swimmers in our Novice programs at this time.)
Swimmers will be notified of additional opportunities to train, compete, and/or try-out for special teams as information is made available throughout the season.
