This document contains:

  • LTAD principles
  • Protocol overviews
  • Reminders for coaches when training skills
  • Progressions for back bends/headstands/v-sits/push-ups
  • List of ALL skills by age group (land, in-pool speed, core, in-pool figure positions/transitions) *Note – The Early Bird Skills Testing events only require testing of a subset of the skills below. For details on Early Bird testing, please contact your Club Head Coach.

(Click ‘Watch on Youtube.com to see full playlist of all age groups)

 

Notes on videos:

  • These videos show ALL Synchro Canada skills (including bridges/headstands, which Ontario will NOT be testing)
  • For any in-Club testing, Clubs may test skills individually, or as a full routine (one skill after another) as shown in the video
  • Athletes in the videos are not necessarily performing each skill perfectly – the aim was to show a variety of ages and skills (how each athlete SHOULD be scored is demonstrated via the circled competencies/total scores shown in the videos).
