Imagine Synchro


Beginning in the summer of 2014, Imagine SWIMMING was thrilled to introduce Synchronized Swimming to its roster of aquatic pursuits. Synchro has a proud Olympic tradition dating back to 1984. Now Imagine is committed to fostering the development of this great sport in New York City. 
 

 

Imagine Synchro is led by Paola Tirados, who was a three-time Spanish Olympian and an Olympic silver medalist at the 2008 Games in Beijing.  Paola got started with a synchronized swimming club team at five-years-old, sparking a passion for water and music. At 13, she became part of the Spanish National Synchronized Swimming team, a group which would go on to establish the benchmark in the sport on the international stage. Paola's competitive career culminated in winning an Olympic Silver Medal and three Olympic Diplomas (awarded to finishers in the top eight). After retiring from the world of competition, Paola has conducted several training camps around the world for children who want to enjoy the water, and has worked with different National Synchronized Swimming Teams- including preparing the USA National Team for the London 2012 Olympic Games.

 



SYNCHRONIZED SWIMMING is a sport that combines physical effort with agility and plasticity. It is a hybrid form of swimming, dance and gymnastics, consisting of swimmers (either solos, duets, teams or combos) performing a synchronized routine of elaborate moves and spectacular figures in the water, accompanied by music.

Synchronized swimming has arrived to Imagine Swimming, and we are so excited to invite everyone who loves the water, music and dance to come and join our team. If you want to try a different sport, we have your team!
