Aqualina have been around since the 1980’s. Historically we have been a recreational club providing a fun way to socialise, learn new skills and keep fit. In the clubs recent history we have evolved into a competitive club and often score highly in regional and national competitions. This recent success has emerged due to the commitment from the club members and volunteers. All the volunteers and members work and train multiple times a week to achieve this success.
Aqualina are based in Hertfordshire, and are part of Swim England East Region. All of our swimmers are encouraged to work towards Skill Grades and enter Local, County, Regional and National Competitions. “Artistic Swimming” formerly know as Synchronised Swimming is a great way of combining swimming and dancing and is often referred to as “Dancing in the Water”.
There are numerous benefits to joining an Artistic Swimming Club, including: Increased fitness, building Social Skills, gaining Confidence and being part of a Team. If you are interested in any of the following sports we would recommend giving Artistic Swimming a try: Gymnastics, Cheerleading, Dancing, Diving, Swimming and Drama.
We are currently running Junior, Senior and Masters training sessions with both male and female swimmers. Our swimmers range from 8 years to 50+
The club is run by our Committee and Head Coach, we rely on the support of many volunteers whom we could not survive without. Click HERE to meet the team.

New to Artistic Swimming
Aqualina work closely with the feeder club KS Swim School. All new starters to the club and sport will start their training with them. The KS Swim School starter sessions take place on Sunday mornings from 11.45am – 12-30pm at Monks Walk pool in Welwyn Garden City, Hertfordshire.
Designed for beginners, the KS Swim School club work on the basic skills and fundamentals of artistic swimming. All swimmers get the opportunity to perform in displays to showcase what they learn in the club with choreographed routines to music.
Once the swimmers are competent at the basic skills and movements of synchro they will then be promoted into the main Aqualina Artistic Swimming club; where there will be no more teaching but instead coaching. Once in the main club the swimmers will be coached to perform skills, figurers, solos, duets and teams. These routines will then get performed all year round at competitions. These competitions are a great way to increase confidence and gain experience in performing in front of an audience.
