WR born 2001-2002

Starts the week of September 17, 2012 until late April 2013


 

Wildrose 12U is Aurora Synchro's program for swimmers who were born in 2001 - 2002 (11 or 12 years old as of December 31, 2013*). Swimmers enjoy a full range of synchro fun and gain a sense of achievement as they have fun and master new skills.

 

This program is for you if you were born in 2001 or 2002 and:

  • You have some synchronized swimming experience, or
  • You have no synchro experience, but you are a strong swimmer, or
  • You have no synchro experience, but you have participated in a related sport such as gymnastics or dancing, or
  • You have no synchro experience, but you're eager to try it.

 

Advantages of Aurora Synchro's Wildrose 12U program:

  • Synchro experience is beneficial but not required.
  • The parental volunteer commitment is small: 12 hours of volunteering.
  • Travel to a meet is included because it's a big part of the fun.
  • Some fundraising is required, such as working at bingos. Costs can be further reduced by volunteering at bingos.
  • Swimmers can invite friends to one lesson.
  • You can attend the first class with no obligation. Contact us at info@aurorasynchro.org to do so.
