Swim­mers in synch

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - SPORT -

COMMUNICARE is launch­ing a se­ries of syn­chro­nised swim­ming classes with a fo­cus on cul­tur­ally and lin­guis­ti­cally di­verse (CaLD) girls.

Syn­chro­nised swim­ming in WA has gone from strength to strength in re­cent years and has ex­panded into in­tro­duc­ing CaLD girls to the sport.

Trainer Alexan­dra Miller said there would be plenty of op­por­tu­nity for young­sters to build swim­ming skills and con­fi­dence in the fe­male-only sport.

“We be­lieve that syn­chro would be a great sport for these girls as we are a fe­male-only sport that fo­cuses on strength, team­work, flex­i­bil­ity and friend­ship,” she said.

“The ses­sions are tar­geted at girls older than six who have some ba­sic wa­ter skills.

“Girls are wel­come to be as cov­ered as they want, pro­vid­ing it does not af­fect their safety in the wa­ter (and) we will have two coaches on deck and one swim­mer in the wa­ter to as­sist – all of whom will be fe­male.”

The ses­sions are free and run through the Depart­ment of Sport and Recre­ation’s Com­mu­nity Par­tic­i­pa­tion Grant.

They will be held at the Gos­nells Leisure World pool from 45pm on Jan­uary 16 to 20.
