For swimmers eager to learn the sport of artistic swimming, Canada Artistic Swimming’s Star Program offers progressive, step-by-step instruction and evaluation suitable for a variety of ages and abilities, including persons with disabilities.
This developmental skills program offers instruction starting with basic skills and moving to more advanced techniques as swimmers progress through the levels. Swimmers will learn all of the fundamental sculls, basic figures and their parts, and be introduced to a sequence and routine component in the early levels (Stars 1-10). They will then move on to the most challenging figures and routine skill sets in the Superstar 1-7 levels.
Competitions and water shows are a chance for swimmers to show-off for family and friends. By entering competitions (regionally, provincially or nationally) swimmers will be vying for medals, trophies and awards. In Canada, swimmers are placed in a competitive Tier for competition according to the Star level achieved, thereby ensuring that they compete against swimmers with similar skills. Competitions and shows are lots of fun and will be sure to build camaraderie amongst teammates!
The program is offered by community-based artistic swimming clubs who are authorized to deliver Canada Artistic Swimming programs. It may also be offered as part of an aquatic program at local pools or as part of a varsity sport program at university or college. To find an artistic swimming program in your area click here.
Participants in the Star Program will receive awards including jewel-toned lapel pins and certificates as they advance through the levels.
