On June 30th we have a number of events planned including the official Olympic Day group photo for all 12 & Under Age Group athletes participating in the eSynchro Age Group Championships and any other athletes that would like to participate.   During the 12 & Under Finals, look for special guests and celebration recognition for those participating.  Is your team or athlete attending eSynchro Age Group Championships? Consider bringing mini USA flags or other celebratory items for the Parade of Athletes to show your Olympic and USA spirit. 

 “We are excited to take part in Olympic Day 2014 and celebrate our great history in the Olympic Games along with inspiring our athletes with special events they can be involved in.” said Nancy Rosengard, USA Synchro VP of Marketing and Member Services. “USA Synchro is proud to support the Olympic Movement and encourage children to lead healthy, active lives.”

The USA Synchro Celebration activity is one of more than 700 events taking place nationwide between June 14 and 30. The events, designed to engage youth and promote the ideals of the Olympic movement, feature athlete appearances, family-friendly activities and interactive learning experiences.

Around the world, more than 160 countries take part in the annual celebration. Olympic Day, created in 1948 to commemorate the birth of the modern Olympic Games, focuses on the Olympic values and ideals such as fair play, perseverance, respect and sportsmanship. In the U.S., Olympic Day events range from small gatherings to large, city-wide events.
