Q. Does the team have varsity status, or is it a club team?
A. The team is considered as a club team. Club sports differ from varsity sports in that clubs are responsible for their expenses. Financial commitments are primarily met through dues, student organized events, and annual fundraising. Thus, we do not offer any athletic scholarships. As a club team, only full-time Boston University undergraduate students may join. Graduate students may be permitted to join under certain circumstances. Faculty, staff, alumni, and FitRec members may not compete on the team.

Q. How often does the team practice?
We practice three times a week: Tuesday and Thursday nights 7 – 10pm and Sundays 11am – 3pm. The first hour of each practice is spent on land in order to learn the routines and stretch.

Q. How many meets do you go to each season?
We usually attend approximately five meets per seasons, including East Regionals and U.S Collegiate Nationals. We also try to host a meet every year so our friends and family can come and cheer us on.

Q. What does a meet consist of?
A meet consists of a competition for each type of routine- solos, duets, trios, and team routines.  We compete against other collegiate teams, both varsity and club.  We also compete in figure competitions, which involve technical elements.

Q. I am interested in joining – do I need to have any synchro experience?
Absolutely not!  We will teach you everything you need to know. Dance or swimming experience is certainly valuable, but even if you don’t have that, we’ll work with you.

Q. I definitely want to join. How do I go about it?
The best thing to do is send an email to Mary Liesegang or Laura Best. They will get you started.
