About this cause
Kernow Artistic Swimming Club (formerly St Austell Synchro Squad) is an inclusive artistic swimming club that encourages all ages and abilities of children and adults from Cornwall to join. It is run by unpaid volunteers and the fees charged cover pool hire and club registration costs. Artistic (formerly synchronised) swimming helps develop strength, confidence, musicality and teamwork.
How this cause brings people in the community together
We have supported our swimmers during coronavirus by staying in touch, facilitating communication between swimmers and providing inspirational resources and videos to help the swimmers feel motivated, connected and physically fit. When back in the pool, the club provides support, activity and feelings of inclusion for members and their families, as well as always welcoming new members.
