York Synchro-ettes

 PRESENTING OUR 33RD ANNUAL WATERSHOW:

"THE LITTLE MERMAID

OCTOBER 10 & 11

 


 



SYNCHRONIZED SWIMMING HAS MORE: 

  KICKS THAN A SOCCER PLAYER

  TURNS THAN A DANCER

  LAPS THAN A RUNNER

  FLIPS THAN A CHEERLEADER

 SETS THAN A VOLLEYBALL PLAYER

 YARDS THAN A FOOTBALL PLAYER

  DIVES THAN A BASEBALL PLAYER

  

 

THE YWCA YORK SYNCHRO-ETTES

WERE FOUNDED IN 1972

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

SYNCHRONIZED SWIMMING IS WHERE THE SCIENCE OF ATHLETICS

MEETS THE ART OF PERFORMANCE:

SYNCHRONIZED SWIMMING IS THE ONLY FEMALE SPORT IN THE OLYMPICS.

SYNCHRONIZED SWIMMING ENCOURAGES CREATIVITY, CONFIDENCE, INTELLIGENCE AND STRENGTH.

THE GIRLS LEARN TO VOLUNTEER, BUILD FRIENDSHIPS AND MASTER THE ART OF SPORTSMANSHIP.

THESE QUALITIES HELP TURN YOUNG GIRLS INTO COMPLETE YOUNG WOMEN.
