Stanford, CA - Stanford University will take the plunge when the 2004 U.S. National Synchronized Swimming Championships come to campus from April 29th to May 1st. All events will be held on campus at the Avery Aquatic Center.
The annual National Championship features the nation's elite swimmers vying for titles in solo, duet, and team events. Top finishers also qualify for the U.S. Senior and Junior National Team trials. Stanford Synchronized Swimming has qualified for the meet in each of the past five seasons. Having previously only taken solos and duets to the competition, Stanford will compete in the team event for the first time in 2004 and will strive for a top-three finish.
This competition supports the efforts of Stanford's Athletic Department to continue to bring the finest championship sporting events to the campus. It is our hope that it will foster the growth of synchronized swimming in the Bay Area.
The U.S. Nationals are televised annually, achieving higher ratings on ESPN than most swimming events (source: ESPN Consumer Research).
