Hamden Heronettes Artistic Swimming
Hamden, CT 06518
Swimming. Gymnastics. Dance. Do all three at once with artistic swimming! The Hamden Heronettes, a non-profit artistic swim club, offers artistic swim training in recreational and team programs, as well as an introductory program year-round.
Since 1970 the Heronettes have provided children and teens in the community with high-intensity artistic swim training at Hamden High School pool. We draw swimmers from across south-central Connecticut and the shoreline. Our practice season runs September through June each year, and we offer training several times a week to develop the necessary artistic swimming components of stamina, grace, and expression. During competitive season in the spring, our teams compete regionally as well as nationally.
We are a proud member of USA Artistic Swimming and utilize their Long Term Athletic Development program to train artistic swimmers. Our coaches take pride in encouraging teamwork and developing commitment in all our programs. They also continue to monitor and adhere to current COVID-19 state guidelines to ensure all swimmers are safe and healthy, while maintaining an educational and fun experience for our members.
Artistic swimming is a unique water sport that will "take your breath away". It builds endurance and confidence, promotes athleticism and artistry, and creates lifelong bonds. Our coaches are all lifeguard certified, complete Coach Certification Program courses, and attend USA Artistic Swimming Coaches' College to ensure quality coaching skills to suit the needs of every swimmer.
If you've ever wondered what artistic swimming is about, sign up for an INTRO TO SYNCHRO session, consisting of up to 10 classes where you will learn fun artistic swim moves. We welcome swimmers ages 6 and up, and run INTRO TO SYNCHRO throughout the year! Upcoming sessions are listed here: http://www.heronettes.org/beginner-class-information.html Summer is a great time to try a session, so grab your swim gear and get in touch!
