About Us

At Oceana Artistic Swimming, we strive to ensure our swimmers are constantly challenged to achieve higher with every stroke or form. We do this through our world-class professional coaches that apply international standards, combined with passion, team spirit, and tailored individual care. Our mission is to raise the profile of Artistic Swimming as a key local and regional sport on par with its peers globally.

We coach our swimmers through rigorous training encouraging them to adopt key life skills that will support their success in this unique sport, as well as in their life in general, such as dedication, commitment and teamwork.

Oceana Artistic Swimming was established in 2019 to cater for girls between the ages of 5 and above. Within a very short period, we succeeded in taking part in the Comen Med 2019 competition in Geneva Switzerland, making us the first club in the UAE to take part in international competitions, raising the bar of the artistic swimming sport to a national level.

Presentation

One of the unique characteristics of artistic swimming is the athlete’s presentation, which includes their costumes, make-up and hairdo. Its glamor and beauty set it apart from the other sports. Artistic swimmers will often wear special costumes that usually complement the music and the moves they have selected in terms of mood and design.

In addition, presentation is one of the key components that affect the swimmers performance rating, as it accounts for part of the points they achieve. Swimmers usually wear waterproof make-up To ensure their facial expressions are sees clearly by the judges. They are also required to lay Gelatin on their hair, so their hairstyles stay intact throughout the performance. In parallel, and in order not to hide their expressions, swimmers do not wear goggles but are permitted to wear nose clips to aid them with the underwater aspects of the routine.

Figure Training and Routines

Figure training sets the base for swimmers to be able to perform routines. Routines are a series of choreographed moves, and patterns that are performed to music – and can be solos, duets or teams.

Figures are the moves executed in the water by the swimmers. There is a set of basic moves that swimmers must learn.

At competitions there is a technical section where the swimmers are tested on their ability to present these moves in-front of the judges.

Junior swimmers have a total of 24 figures that they learn as they progress through the levels, Senior swimmers have to perform a technical routine
