The recreational program is now offered in three locations:
The Recreation program is intended to give participants an introduction to the sport of artistic swimming. We have combined some of the essential skills with the Ontario Artistic Swimming Aqua-Go program.
Our classes run for one hour, once a week, for various length sessions. Each lesson your child can expect to participate in stretching, warm-up, review, and practice, learning new skills, routine development, and a variety of games and activities.
We follow the Ontario Artistic Swimming Aqua-Go program with the LTAD (Long Term Athlete Development) model in mind. The program addresses each of the 5 Basic S's of Training and Performance: Strength, Stamina, Suppleness, Speed, and Skill. In addition we have added a 6th S: Social, as teamwork is so key in artistic swimming.
Swimmers in our recreational program will learn a variety of basic skills and work on a short routine. On the last day of classes, swimmers will be tested for their Ontario Artistic Swimming badge and will perform their routine.
