Synchro in the East Midlands07/10/2014
Welcome to the home of synchro in the East Midlands. Synchronised swimming, known in the community as synchro, is a fantastic sport which combines strength, agility, rhythm and flair.
Competitive synchro swimmers must be extremely fit, and completely at home in the water to perform routines on their own, with a partner or as part of a team.
- Find out more about synchro on the Swim England Synchro Hub.
Synchro routines are essentially athletic movements performed in water and choreographed to music.
