Club description

Welcome to the Dacorum Synchro Swimming Club (DSSC). We are a club dedicated to identifying and nurturing talent, and developing the multi-disciplinary skills required in synchronised swim. We accept members of all ages and experience - all we ask for is proficiency in front, back, and breast stroke, and dedication and committment. DSSC is affiliated to the Amateur Swimming Association (ASA).
Synchronised Swimming ("Ballet in the water") athletes is growing in importance as a sport both in the UK and internationally - it was one of the first events to sell out at the Olympic Games. When tested and compared with other Olympic athletes the results showed that synchro swimmers ranked second only to long distance runners in aerobic capacity, and to gymnasts in flexibility. Competitive synchro swimmers must gain many skills to succeed, this includes strength, stamina, flexibility, breath control, timing, grace, and expressiveness.
