Artistic Swimming in the East Midlands

Welcome to the home of Artistic Swimming in the East Midlands. Artistic Swimming, known in the community as synchro, is a fantastic sport which combines strength, agility, rhythm and flair.

Competitive Artistic 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.

Artistic Swimming routines are essentially athletic movements performed in water and choreographed to music.
