British Synchronised Swimming
British Synchronised Swimming, powered by British Gas, is the discipline that develops the elite side of the sport. It identifies and trains athletes and sets long-term strategies and clear objectives for the sport. Learn more here.
British Synchro has one aim: be the best you can be! It is under-pinnned by the British Synchro World Class programme, a system of talented coaches and support staff working with a core group of talented athletes.
Learn more about our current athletes at the British Synchronised Swimming High Performance Centre in Aldershot on our profile pages.There are currently nine synchronised swimmers who are operating at the highest level of the sport. These core athletes train at British Synchro’s High Performance Centre in Aldershot. You can read more about the athletes in our Profiles section.
Improved performances in recent years have catapulted the squad, and particularly the duet, up the world rankings and this was reflected in the latest round of Lottery funding, which saw the investment in the sport rise 110 per cent.
High Performance Centre
In September 2007, British Synchro centralised at the British Army Barracks in Aldershot to form the High Performance Centre.
The Centre is now home to the sport’s elite swimmers and their coaches where everyone is dedicated to fulfilling their potential at a home Olympics.
Athletes at the Centre benefit from a full training programme, including physical and technical preparation, a competition programme that covers international events, nutritional, psychological and physiological monitoring and lifestyle support.
“One of the biggest highlights for me has been setting up the High Performance Centre in Aldershot. This was great because it meant that we could get the programme up to speed.
