Provincial Competitive Programs


Aurora Provincial Competitive teams are organized into age groups. The earliest someone can compete according to Alberta Artistic Swimming (AAS) rules is 8 turning 9 in 2022. Each age group competes in a team routine and figures skills at competitions within the Province. The 16-20 age group does not compete figures, instead they participate in two routines. In Alberta provincial level athletes are also referred to as Wildrose. 

Team routines are what most people see on TV - a routine with music in a minimum group size of 4 to a maximum of 10. This is the event where swimmers wear make-up, fancier suits, gel their hair up and wear a nose clip. Figures are skills that are competed individually in front of a panel of 3-5 judges who will flash a score between 0.1-9.9. Swimmers compete in 4 figures at each competition. In this event, swimmers wear black caps, white caps, nose clip and goggles. 

To understand more about the different streams, see the Auroras pathways. See the pre-competitive handbook for a printable version of what to expect in this stream.

Swimmers enjoy team training and competition, including competing in individual figures skills, travelling to out-of-town meets, plus training other aquatic skills like swimming and diving. Swimmers gain a sense of achievement and team work as they have fun.
