Imagine Synchro

is launching a Novice Group!

We’re excited for this group to fill out our team, attract more young swimmers to learn the basics of the sport, and build the base of our team’s talent. We also have great expectations for opportunities for our current swimmers to grow and develop by leading and mentoring potential future teammates.

Practice will most likely consist of the following:

4:15p - 4:30p : Land (Flexibility)

4:30p - 4:45p : Swimming

4:45p - 5:00p : Synchro Laps

5:00p - 5:15p : Synchro Technique on wall

Practices will be held on Thursday afternoons at BMCC (77 Harrison St) from 4:15p - 5:15p. They will start on October 19th and run through July.  The first practice on 10/19 will be a trial. Thereafter, swimmers going forward will commit for the season, which ends on July 25th.

 

Know anyone perfect for Novice?

Refer them in! We’d love to see if they’d like to be included in the Sept 27 interest practice!

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.

 

Joining Paola as a coach this year we have Lindsey Solomon. As a child, Lindsey swam competitive synchro for the Coral Springs Aquacades in Florida for 10 years. She then coached for the Gainesville Gaviatas throughout her four years of college. She is currently in physical therapy school at NYU and recently received her yoga teacher training certificate. Additionally, she recently joined the NY Aqualillies team, a team of synchronized swimmers and dancers that put on performances and shows around the country.

 


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 any girl or boy who loves the water, music and dance to come and join our team. Your age doesn't matter, if you know how to swim freestyle, breaststroke and backstroke, you are ready to start synchro.


Our Imagine Synchro Team is practicing during the week, and preparing the East Zone Meets, where the swimmers will swim their best routines and choreographies. Art and sport together. Speed swimming, flexibility, acrobatics, dance and synchro basics are present in our practices. So, if you enjoy in the water, but you need more challenges, come to practice synchro with us, we are waiting you!!!


We want children enjoying a new sport in Manhattan and learning from its values. We are here to learn and improve, to lear about teamwork, and above all, to enjoy the sport!!!
 


IMPORTANT UPDATE!

Synchro team practices will be moving to BMCC! In what we consider a major coup, we will have a significant upgrade in facilities and be holding practices at the BMCC pool (77 Harrison St) as opposed to St. Bart’s this season. we are eager to build the team in such a quality facility!
