2015 U.S. Synchronized Swimming Junior Olympics: June 26-July 4, 2015
Spectators have been awed by the grace and power of synchronized swimming since the inception of the sport in the early 1900s. Synchronized swimming requires a unique combination of overall body strength and agility, grace and beauty, split-second timing, musical interpretation, stamina and dramatic flair. U.S. Synchronized Swimming [USSS], also known as USA Synchro, is the United States national governing body for the sport. It is recognized by the International Olympic Committee, the United States Olympic Committee and FINA (Federation Internationale de Natation Amateur) — the international governing federation. USSS organizes, participates in, and promotes a variety of competitive events each year. These events begin at the local level and continue in the following categories: Age Group (12-19), Junior (15-18), Senior and Masters (20+).
Nothing could be more patriotic than staying overnight at the Proximity Hotel and watching our America's rising stars in synchronized swimming during the Junior Olympics, June 26-July 4. Learn more by clicking here.
