AquaGO! - An Intro to Artistic Swimming
Halifax Aqua Nova is pleased to introduce AquaGO!, a nation-wide grassroots foundation program for artistic swimming in Canada and is the launching pad for all other programs delivered by Canada Artistic Swimming. It is an opportunity for children as young as age 5 to have fun, develop aquatic literacy, learn the basics of artistic swimming and develop basic physical and athletic skills in and out of the water.
AquaGO! is a 12 week session.
Equipment required: bathing cap (provided at first class), one piece bathing suit, goggles, nose clip and a towel for stretching, and a MASK.
In the event of a cancelled class (due to weather, facility closure, etc.), we will make every effort possible to schedule a make-up class.
Masters (19+) + Senior Rec (16-18)
Masters will be offered Tuesdays and Thursdays from 6:30pm to 7:30pm. Registration is for both nights.
Our Masters team focuses on fitness and improving synchro skills. It is designed for adult swimmers who want to:
a) develop their swimming skills with an introduction to synchro movements and sculling.
b) develop their synchro skills with a fun and welcoming environment.
What do I need?
Swimmers will need a full piece swimsuit, bathing cap, goggle, nose clips, and a MASK.
Below is a sample of the AquaGO lesson plans
AquaGO was designed to build an overall athlete so there are actually many exercises that are done on land before getting into the water. Your child may not be in the pool until 30 minutes into the lesson and your child may also get out of the pool before the lesson is over to continue doing dry-land training.
