KW Synchro’s recreational programs are designed around the Canada Sport Centres’ Long-term Athlete Development (LTAD) initiative. By adopting LTAD, KW Synchro is committed to ensuring that children learn fundamental movement skills transferable to all sports, along with a strong foundation of synchro skills. Research conducted by the Canada Sport Centres shows that children physically educated in the LTAD method will:
- Feel confident and be encouraged to continue to build on these skills through recreational and competitive sport activity.
- Enjoy overall health benefits by developing greater physical literacy, which encourages them to be more physically active throughout their lives.
Participants in KW Synchro’s recreational programs will develop stamina (endurance), strength, speed, suppleness (flexibility) and synchro skills in a fun-filled, supportive environment. Swimmers will also develop friendships and exercise their creativity learning team-based routines that are performed at club water shows in December and April. In addition, participants in full year programs have the opportunity to take part in local recreational competitions, and attend practices with KW Synchro’s competitive team.
Swimmers participate in Synchro Canada’s Star Awards program, which provides 10 levels of graduated skill development. At the conclusion of each program, swimmers are assessed by Synchro Ontario officials and KW Synchro coaching team members. Swimmers can progress through the Star Awards program at the recreational level, or make the leap onto KW Synchro’s competitive team at any point in their career.
KW Synchro’s recreational programs are suitable for participants of any age who have basic swimming competency. Completion of Red Cross Swim Kids 4 is recommended but not mandatory.
