Grangemouth Amateur Synchronised Swimming Club

Grangemouth Amateur Swimming Club, in conjunction with Falkirk Community Trust Sports Development, has now established a Synchronised Swimming Club

This is an exciting opportunity for children in the local area to develop new skills within an enjoyable and fun environment. Why not come along and give it a try?

Entry requirements:
Synchronised swimming requires flexibility and stamina. Current or previous experience in swimming with additional dance, diving or gymnastics skills is therefore helpful. All new swimmers must to be able to swim 100 metres breaststroke without being totally breathless.  

Progression in synchronised swimming:  
Initially, the club will be working towards Scottish Swimming Awards in Synchronised swimming to allow your child to gain basic competencies in the sport. Following completion of the aforementioned Awards, it will be the intention of the coaches to look at ways in which your child can be progressed to national synchronised swimming gradings.

Competitions:
UK Synchro Swim OlympicsGASC is a vibrant new club and although the Club is in its early stages of development, it is the intention of the Club to participate, when appropriate to do so, in various competitions at local and national level throughout the year. The swimmers all enjoy the routine element of training and putting these into practise through competing at these events.

Novice competitions are usually held in October of each year and we try to encourage as many swimmers as possible to take part in this event.   

 

Training:

The Club currently trains on Thursdays evenings within Grangemouth High School, as undernoted:

1st Class - 7.00 to 8.00pm

2nd Class - 8.00 to 9.00pm

Due to the high number of swimmers attending, the class times are split into two sessions. The coaches will decide which session swimmers will attend.

Occasional Saturday sessions are also held within Bo’ness Recreation Centre and also incorporate land training. Dates of these sessions are circulated in advance by the Club Secretary.  

Swimmers must be on the poolside ready to start swimming 15 minutes prior to the start of the session.

Equipment:
During each session you must bring along a swimming hat, nose clip and goggles. Synchronised swimming is a demanding sport therefore all swimmers must bring onto poolside weak diluting juice or water for essential hydration.

Items for sale:
Club kit including hoodies, joggies, t-shirts and caps are available to purchase. Ask one of the coaches for information.

Coaches:
The Club now has one Level 2 Coach, Two - Level 1 Coaches and Two Poolside Helpers who all give up their time. All of the coaches are committed to synchronised swimming and developing the swimmers to reach their full potential. In return we expect swimmers to be committed, willing to listen and to try their best.

Fees:
For all new swimmers the first week is free. £2 per session will then be payable on the day until the end of the month with the expectation being that thereafter a direct debit form for the amount of £10 per month be set up. Seek guidance from the coaches for information.  

Synchro Mark

Grangemouth Synchro Club has now achieved SynchroMark which was awarded to us by Scottish Swimming in June 2014.

You will need to complete an application form which can be obtained from the Club Secretary.
