Novice (Pre-Competitive)

The Durham Synchro Club Novice Program is designed for swimmers who want to further their skills beyond what is taught at the recreational level and/or get some experience at provincial competitions. We have 2 novice streams: 8 and under (6 to 8 years of age) and 13-15 (12 to 16 years). Swimmers must be able to pass the swim test at our local pools (swim 2 lengths independently) and be comfortable in deep water. Lessons typically are 1.5 to 2 hours in duration, 2-3 days per week and the program runs from September to May. Swimmers work on artistic swimming skills and develop a choreographed routine throughout the program. Swimmers compete at 2 to 3 Novice competitions in a season. Swimmers also perform in a holiday and year-end water show for family and friends (admission fee required).



Novice fees are determined seasonally; please inquire about our fees for the upcoming season.  A non-refundable registration fee of $275 is due upon enrolment. Fees are paid in monthly instalments over the season.

Registration for the 2021-22 Season is now closed.
