Bristol Central Synchro Club hosted the first Synchro Beacon Games at Soundwell Pool, Bristol on Saturday 11th July 2015.
This was a regional figures competition open to those on the Regional Beacon Programmes (Leeds, Reading, Rugby & Rushmoor), England development, and all other ASA registered swimmers who fall within the 9-12 and 13-15 age category and who hold skill level 2 or above.
Medals were awarded to the top three swimmers in each age group from the Regional Beacon squads and to the top three swimmers in the open figures comp. A trophy was also awarded to the overall winning Regional Beacon squad. All 4 Beacon squads and England development squad performed a short display of the England "Peter Pan" routine at the end of the competition.
The competition will showcase talent from those on the ASA Beacon Programme – a talent development pathway created to help young athletes reach their full potential. The ASA’s Beacon Programmes are in place to support the regional swim21 networks of clubs and each programme provides regular access for a regionally selected group of swimmers to long course training, sports science support services and educational programmes as an enhancement to their club programmes.
