The Star Program is a developmental skills program for athletes of any age with instruction ranging from basic to advanced skills. This program is suitable for the able bodied and athletes with a disability.
Athletes will learn sculling, body positions, figures, and routine skills while improving strength and body awareness in the water. Competitions and water shows are also part of Synchro – both provide a chance to perform for family and friends.
Recreational athletes typically practice a fewer hours (once or twice a week) considerably less than Provincial and National Stream athletes. Recreational athletes have the opportunity to attend the Recreational Championships which usually takes place in the spring.
