A large part of what makes this VV synchro team so successful and fun is the comradery between all the swimmers and coaches. Younger swimmers look up to the older ones for inspiration and guidance; more experienced synchro swimmers love to give back and share their hard-earned talents. For this reason, we are so proud that all of our coaches are former swimmers who have grown up as a part of the VV synchro team. These women show a desire to give back, nurture, and mentor swimmers of all ages. They hope to inspire the younger members of the team to stay committed to synchro and someday become coaches themselves!
