I’m passing this information on about an opportunity to try out synchronized swimming, for free:
FREE Clinic (1 – 3pm)
August 8: Beginning Synchronized Swimming
Huntersville Family Fitness & Aquatics in the small 25 yard pool
11725 Verhoeff Dr. off of Highway 21
Call 704-766-2222 or stop by HFFA to sign up.
Ages 6 to16
No synchronized swimming experience is necessary, but participants should be able to swim 25 yards of freestyle and tread water for at least 30 seconds.
Cost: Free! Open to members and non-members
Learn beginning skills including sculling, eggbeater kick (like water polo players only smoother), figures (such as back pike somersaults, back tucks, and pinwheels), and floats (where a group of swimmers make connecting patterns in the water).
To experience the sport live, plan to attend the UANA Pan Am Junior Synchronized Swimming Championship at HFFA August 12-15. Tickets start at only $6, and there are also volunteer opportunities. Go to http://www.hffa.com/syncorswim/ for additional information.
