Talent Identification Program


The intention of the program is to support the further development of our targeted athletes in the province of British Columbia for synchronized swimming through specialized and additional training opportunities with the goals of National Team placement and to build the 2019 Canada Winter Games team for podium results.



All athletes have the responsibility to represent the province with integrity in their actions and behavior on and off the pool deck. Athletes should be acknowledged as leaders and inspiration in this sport. Athletes are to arrive at least 15min early to every camp and training session and be positively, physically and mentally prepared.
It is expected that all athletes wear program wardrobe and/or neutral clothing at all camps including black suits and white caps
