Gateshead Synchronised Swimming Club
Welcome to GSSC, one of the biggest and most successful synchronised swimming clubs in the North of England.
We offer youngsters who are already proficient swimmers the chance to specialise in synchro which is an Olympic sport that is growing in popularity. The club has members from 6 years of age upwards and they compete at a recreational and competitive/National level. We are a competitive club and enter teams for age categories from 12 & under to 19 & under in at least 3 major competitions each year.
However, while taking part in competitions provides focus and motivation, the benefits of training for synchro are much more far reaching. It encourages team spirit and promotes a healthy lifestyle as well as developing a high level of aerobic fitness and flexibility. Synchronised swimmers must be strong yet graceful, have stamina and determination and be able to interpret and perform to music.
The club is based at Dunston and trains there 3 times a week. We welcome both boys and girls, the only prerequisites are that they are already proficient swimmers in front & back crawl and breast stroke as well as having a positive attitude and commitment to regular training.
