Synchronised swimming is a combination of dancing, gymnastics and swimming. Synchro is performed in solos, duets or teams to music. Stockport Metro follows the competitive skill grades and the swimmers participate in regional and national level competitions as well as displays.
In grade tests and competitions the swimmers are marked on technical merit (the correctness and complexity of moves) and artistic impression (how the choreography of the routine reflects the music of choice) Swimmers can hear the music underwater with the aid of the underwater speaker!!
