City Of Birmingham - Synchronised Swimming
Birmingham Synchronised Swimming Club was originally formed in 1984 and over the years we have had a number of successes with members becoming Great Britain team members and Midland District champions. Our Head Coach, Allison Pratt, swam for Great Britain, captaining the team and was a team member taking gold in the 1983 European Championships. Allison has recently been appointed to the prestigious FINA 'A' list of synchro judges making her eligible for selection to judge at International and Olympic level.
The City of Birmingham Swimming Club, of which we are a section, was founded in 1983 as an umbrella Aquatic Club, with Speed Swimming, Synchro, Water Polo and Disabilities all represented. It is fully affiliated to the Amateur Swimming Association.
The ASA is the English national governing body for swimming, diving, water polo, open water and synchronised swimming. It organises competitions throughout England, establishes the laws of the sport and operates comprehensive certification and education programmes for teachers, coaches and officials as well as its renowned Learn To Swim Awards scheme. The ASA also supports 1,600 affiliated swimming clubs through a National/Regional/County structure and we have close links with the West Midlands Region and the Warwickshire Region.
