Novice Program (formerly called Teen Synchro)
A program for swimmers at least 11 years of age (as at Dec. 31, 2019) wishing to develop their synchro skills and to test their skills by competing at meets. Swimmers attend three meets during the season at which they will demonstrate their individual skills and perform their team routine. Their team routine will be performed also at the Splash Bash Swim Show. KTSC expects to register swimmers in the following meets:
Early Bird Skill Testing Event (East)—Oct. 27-28; Location TBA
Trillium Novice Regionals (East & North)—Feb. 2-3; Oshawa or Orillia
Novice Provincial Championships—April 25-28 or May 2-5; Location TBA
Following an assessment in the first weeks of the program, swimmers will be grouped into teams reflecting their ages, strengths, and skills. Because synchronized swimming is a team sport, all Novice swimmers are expected to attend all meets at which their teams are competing. Participation at each meet is required for participation in subsequent meets. Please notice that some meets are scheduled for multiple days and may require both travel and accommodations. (Travel and accommodations are not included in the registration fees.)
3.5 hours of practice time in the pool each week in addition to 30 minutes of land training. Practices will be on Mondays and Fridays in the evening.
Begins on September 17, 2018 and runs until the Splash Bash Swim Show (see above).
Swimmers in our Novice program will be provided with one red KTSC shirt. Swimmers will be expected to wear their KTSC shirts, along with black athletic shorts, capris, or pants when representing our club at meets. Sizing and additional clothing options will be presented at Registration.
