BOK Synchronised Swimming Squad

The BOK Synchronettes

Combining strength, flexibility, endurance and artistry, synchronised swimming is a physically demanding and highly technical sport. It’s also great fun!

Who we are

Founded in 1982, BOK Synchronettes are the synchronised swimming arm of Borough of Kirklees Swimming Club. We operate independently of the main club to give synchronised swimmers the support and training to become the best that they can be in their chosen sport.

What we do

Synchronised swimming involves performing moves, including specific skills, in water, to music. This can either be as a solo performer or as part of a duet or team. BOK Synchronettes train and compete in all three disciplines.

Routines are usually choreographed by our qualified coaches.

Swimmers are also offered the opportunity to take Grades. These are professionally assessed qualifications that determine the category in which each swimmer can compete.

Each Grade consists of a set of specific moves that the swimmer must complete to a desired standard in order to pass. The higher the Grade, the harder the moves.

How we operate

To keep costs to a minimum for swimmers, BOK Synchronettes is run by a dedicated committee of parents / guardians. The committee organises everything from competition entries and training to official kit orders and pool bookings. The club continues to be successful thanks to the time and effort given by these valued volunteers.

During competitions, parents / guardians are also expected to help out with the various duties. For some roles, training can be provided. There is also a parent rota for the coomber (music machine) and poolside helpers, please see below:
