SANTA CLARA, Calif., Aug. 23, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — The founders of Santa Clara Aquamaids are pleased to announce that they will be hosting the 2021 Aquamaids’ Artistic Swimming Assessment Day from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday, August 28, 2021.
To learn more about the 2021 Aquamaids’ Artistic Swimming Assessment Day, which is being held at Gunderson High School, 622 Gaundabert Lane in San Jose, please visit https://aquamaids.org/news/2021-aquamaids-assessment-day.
As a spokesperson for Santa Clara Aquamaids noted, athletes 6 to 10 years of age who wish to participate in Santa Clara Aquamaids’ competitive year-round programs are welcome to attend the free assessment, as are 11 and 12-year-olds who have experience in a supporting sport like gymnastics, ballet, ice skating and/or swimming.
“Each participant will be evaluated for 20 to 25 minutes on their flexibility, extension, swimming ability, athleticism, maturity, and overall Aquamaids/Aquamen readiness,” the spokesperson noted, adding that all participants must be water-safe and comfortable off the wall in the deep end of the pool, and everybody must arrive in their bathing suits with their hair up and wearing a face mask.
The timing for the assessment could not be better; Artistic Swimming was featured on television during the 2020 Summer Olympics in Tokyo, and the founders of Santa Clara Aquamaids hope young athletes are now inspired to give this magical and artistic sport a try.
Spaces within the Aquamaids/Aquamen program are limited. Each participant will receive an email with their program recommendation on Sunday, August 29.
“Santa Clara Aquamaids is proud to provide support and training for athletes interested in the athleticism, artistry, and teamwork of artistic swimming,” the spokesperson noted.
“With our recent strong showing in the Junior Olympic Championships in Colorado Springs, Colorado, we’re looking forward to our biggest season yet.”
