I started synchro nine years ago and have been coaching for four seasons. I coach because I love sharing the knowledge that I’ve gained over the years. I also share my love of the sport and hope that the swimmers will love it as much as I do! My favourite  thing about synchro is being the oldest swimmer in the club. I love being a role model and mentor for the younger swimmers and coaches. It is also very fun!

I started swimming six years ago and this is my third year coaching. I like coaching because I get to kids be active at a young age. I also enjoy working with them and teaching them about the sport. My favourite synchro memory is the first time I went to a competition, I was nervous but excited and that feeling has never left even after many competitions!

This year marks my sixth year of swimming and my third year coaching. I enjoy coaching because I get to teach younger swimmers what I have learned throughout my synchro years. It is very rewarding to see swimmers learn and then perfect figures and routines. I love how teams work together to make something great!

I have been swimming synchro for six years, and coaching for three years. My favourite part about being a coach is watching the swimmers learn and develop synchro skills throughout the year. The progress and strength they gain throughout the year is amazing! My favourite synchro moments are when the team works together and becomes part of my synchro family!

I have been involved in synchro for four years. I like coaching because all the kids I have coached are incredibly optimistic and always excited for each practice. I love seeing them work together and share their ideas. My favorite synchro moment was when I showed off my flat splits at dryland. I worked very hard to get them flat and it felt amazing to achieve my goal.

I started synchro six years ago when I saw it at the end of a movie and thought “Hey, I want to do that too.” I have coached for three years and am looking forward to coaching another. I love coaching because I love seeing swimmers improving their strength and swimming skills, like I did in my first year. I also love teaching swimmers something new and watching them be successful. My favourite synchro moments are making my teammates laugh before a stressful situation, such as a competition.

I started synchro two years ago and this is my first year as an assistant coach. My favourite thing about synchro is making new friends and learning new routines. I can still remember my first routine meet where I was nervous, but very excited to compete!
