The Team

Most of our new swimmers have never done synchronized swimming before, so don't worry if you are brand new to the sport!

Each swimmer is placed in a Team of 4 to 8 swimmers, who are similar in age and skill level. The entire Saint Paul Stars club is typically grouped into 4 or 5 Teams. More advanced swimmers may also be placed in a Duet or Solo. Practice times and locations are divided by teams and age groups.
