Program Objectives

The overall objectives of the Sport Development Program are:

  • To align Synchro BC Programs with the Long Term Athlete Development program to increase skill level, physical literacy and fitness of athletes while building a foundation of synchronized swimming
  • To create a clear pathway to excellence while providing athletes with opportunities that will enhance their confidence and skills
  • To increase the accessibility, participation, health and wellbeing of athletes through the sport of synchronized swimming in all BC Summer Games Zones
  • To provide likeminded athletes with equal additional training opportunities, outside of existing scheduled club practices to enhance and strengthen basic skills
  • To enhance coach education and collaboration throughout the province where excellence can be achieved together
  • To offer camps combined with our Talent Identification Program Camps (current existing program for AG13-15, Junior & Senior athletes) which will provide athletes with older athlete mentors and will help encourage and excite them for their future in synchronized swimming. This will also sustain both programs by sharing facility fees
