Davis AquaStarz Synchronized Swimming Team Website

Home

The AquaStarz team belongs to the Valley Foothill Competitive Aquatic League (VFCAL) swim league, which includes five synchronized swimming teams:

VFCAL Teams:

Auburn Mermaids
Cordova Cordettes

Davis AquaStarz
FEC Stingrays
Sunrise Swans

AquaStarz swimmers compete in 4 Dual Meets and the Championships Meet (Champs). Dual Meets are competitions between 2 teams and take place on Wednesday evenings. Champs is the culminating meet of the summer.  It involves all 5 VFCAL teams and occurs on a weekend in July.  Champs provides the biggest opportunity for routine swimmers to show what they've worked on all summer.  Novice swimmers also have the opportunity to advance to the intermediate level by striving for one of the top 8 figure positions in their age group (10 & older only). Swimmers are not required to compete in any of the meets. However, to quality for the Champs, swimmers must compete in 2 of the 4 dual meets.  No qualifying placement is required, only participation.

*Some details may change during the course of the 2017 season. Please refer to the team calendar for the latest meet and practice details. 

 

During these meets, swimmers can compete in figures and routines.  Figures are brief combinations of basic compulsory movements that all swimmers must learn in order to compete in synchronized swimming.  These movements are performed in front of a panel of 5 league-trained, volunteer parent judges.  The judges score swimmers on a 1-10 scale on 4 figures.  Scores are combined to place swimmers within their age group.  Ribbons are given for the top 6 places in each age group (top 8 at champs).

Routines are set to music and provide swimmers the chance to not only show their technical skill, but to perform.  Not all routines compete in meets, but all are preformed during our Annual Show in July.
