Los Angeles Synchro (LAS) is a sanctioned U.S. Synchro swim team. We compete at the local, regional, national, and international level. Our team has consistently placed routines in the top ten at the national level for the past several years. Los Angeles Synchro's competitive season runs from September through the first week in August. The goal of the team is to promote "Friends, fun, and achieving our goals!"
Los Angeles Synchro was established in 1978 by Patti Woodman to provide novice swimmers with an opportunity to achieve a higher level of synchronized swimming skills. Over the years, with the guidance from top coaches, our program and swimmers have continued to advance with Los Angeles Synchro alumni going on to swim on U.S. National teams.
Some of Los Angeles Synchro's past and current high level coaches include former olympians, world champions, and national team members from the U.S. and other countries: Jenny Baik, Jeanette Bacigalupo, Margot Thien, Becky Dyroen-Lancer, and current coaches Jennie Culp-Finerty and Meghan Kinney-Avrett.
Los Angeles Synchro was a Los Angeles City sponsored team from 1978 to December 2010. In December of 2010, the L.A. City budget cuts no longer allowed allow the City of Los Angeles to sponsor any of their many club level teams. We are very grateful to the City of Los Angeles for helping us become the team we are today and for our continued partnership that we have with them.
December 2010 started a new chapter of excellence for our team. We became incorporated, gained our 501(c)(3) tax-exempt status, and we changed our official name to Los Angeles Synchronized Swim Club. We have a board, and have continued our tradition of excellence with our athletes.
During the 2011/2012 season we had athletes qualify and attend U.S. National Team Training Camps, and U.S. National Team Trials. At U.S. Open, an international meet, both our routines scored in the top ten. At State Games, we brought home the title of State Champions in synchronized swimming. We also continued our tradition of placing routines in the top ten nationally at Age Group Nationals. This is in addition to the many other outstanding accomplishments and medals our team brought home this year! We are looking forward to another excellent 2012/2013 season!
