Join us Tuesday 9/9 at room L133 in FitRec at 7PM. There you’ll get to hear a little more about our team before getting in the pool. We will swim some laps to warm up and be teaching some introductory synchro skills! We have pool time at 8PM and will be in the water until 9 or 10PM. It’ll be a very easy-going practice and just because you swim with us on Tuesday doesn’t mean you need to join the team. But please let us know if you decide you do want to come back for Thursday practice!
Bring: swim cap, swim suit, towel, water, noseclip, goggles! We have noseclips to lend or purchase if you do not have one. Goggles and caps can be purchased at the FitRec pro shop if you need them.
Hope to see you there!
We’re so excited to be back in the pool in September and we’re looking for some new friends to join us! If you’re interested in joining or have more questions about the team please contact our team President Elissa Feist or Vice President Lindsay Hawthorne! We’ll be at SPLASH and the Club Sports Expo in the fall and our first practice will be shortly after the first week of classes. More updates to come!
Please come out and support the BU Synchronized Swim Team as we compete tomorrow against Canisius College, Smith College, the University of Pennsylvania, Wheaton College, and the College of William and Mary! Remember to wear red, especially BU paraphernalia. Thank you!
For more information, please see the last blog post. The event is free and open to the public. Competition starts at 12:00 and should end by 3:30. Click here to RVSP on Facebook.

The BU Synchronized Swim team is off on break like the rest of BU but our members are still training at home– land-drill, land-drill, land-drill! It may be 20 degrees below freezing but hey, I freeze every time I look at the water, so what’s the difference? 😉 We hope that everyone is enjoying the winter weather before global warming deprives us of it all and remember, the pool area is always warm so be sure to stop by to see us compete! We’re working hard and we always love a good audience. See you there! Until then, dress warm. 🙂
Hope you all had a great summer! We are so excited to start up again in the Fall. The team will work harder than ever and set higher goals to be ready to take on this meet season including our hosting of the Eastern College Athletic Conference Championships this year! We are hoping to see some new faces on the team in the fall. Experienced or complete beginner, as a club team, BU Synchro takes anyone who is interested in trying out our team! It’s a lot of fun, great exercise, and a great way to make new friends whether you’re new to BU or not.
You can come meet us on the sidewalk in front of FitRec on Labor Day Monday September 2nd from Noon-3pm. Or you can feel free to contact me or our team captain for this year, Jen, at firstname.lastname@example.org. We love questions!
Hope to see you in September!
