Adult (20+) Masters Program

Synchronized swimming has come a long way since the aquatic musicals of Esther Williams. In addition to being a challenging Olympic, collegiate and youth sport, synchro can also be a life-long fitness activity.

Because it takes place in water, synchro is low-impact, putting less stress on your joints than running or other land exercises. At the same time, it's a high-intensity cardiovascular workout that tones your legs, arms and core as you increase your endurance and breath control. Add music, and it's a fun way to stay in shape that can be continued throughout your retirement years.

Current PTX Masters swimmers range from former Age Group and collegiate competitors to a a former McKinney Mermaids swimmer in her 60s. We welcome both seasoned swimmers and newcomers over the age of 19.

Our experienced swimmers (who are also USSS certified coaches) will teach any interested beginners basic synchronized swimming techniques, figures and routines set to music. Practices typically consist of a swimming and synchro conditioning warm-up (tailored to your fitness level), followed by figure work and a routine swimming and choreography session.

Participants can take advantage of our unique and challenging workouts to increase their strength, flexibility and stamina while developing creativity and close bonds with teammates. Each October, interested team members may also opt to compete at US Masters Nationals, joining a tight-knit community of athletes from across the country. At Nationals, you can witness our sport's gamut of skill levels and its longevity, with swimmers as young as 20 all the way up to athletes in their 80s! In 2016 our team placed 6th in the 40-49 age group category.
