Wildrose 13-15 is Aurora Synchro's Wildrose program for swimmers born in 1998 to 2000 (who are 15 or under as of December 31, 2013) with provincial-level synchro goals. (We also have a National 13-15 program for swimmers with national-level goals.)
Advantages of this program:
Some fundraising is required, such as working at bingos, but costs can be further reduced by volunteering at bingos.

Registration with the Aurora Synchro club is for the synchro year, from September 1 to August 31.
Registration is a multi-step process.
First you submit the registration form and pay the registration fee.
Then we approve it and send you log-in information.
Then you can sign in to the website. Some of the web pages are hidden to the public, visible only when you're signed in.
Once you're registered with the club, throughout the year you can sign up for other events, such as camps, by selecting "Attend this Event" under the Events tab.
Please contact us if you have any questions about the Wildrose 13-15 program. We're quite flexible.
Age is determined as at the end of the year when the competitions are held. For 2012-13 the competitions occur in 2013, so age is calculated as of December 31, 2013.
If you're interested in moving from the Wildrose stream to the National stream, please contact the head coach. We have programs for the transition.
Lots of our members carpool to the pool. We have members from all over the city and surrounding areas. Let us know if you're interested in car pooling, and we'll put you in touch.
