FINA AS Virtual Challenge

Dec. 18 - 20, 2020


FINA Artistic Swimming - Virtual Challenge 

As the sport of Artistic Swimming has been adjusting to the restrictions during these uncertain pandemic times, the TASC has chosen to move to a virtual platform. This provides us the opportunity to connect with our athletes, coaches, judges and audience amid varying degrees of training restrictions imposed by COVID-19. 

The Virtual Challenge Committee has enlisted expert coaches to create a forty-five second dryland routine challenge to engage athletes across the globe. All routines will be filmed using an Instagram water effect application to give the illusion of athletes performing in the water. 

In an effort to give all athletes and coaches an opportunity to utilize the latest development in artistic swimming judging, a declared Degree of Difficulty from each routine will be calculated by the Innovation Committee. Each routine element has been created with three levels of difficulty for coaches to select from, and coaches may choose the level of difficulty which is best suited to the skill level of their athlete.

We invite all our clubs to join in on the event and watch as our National Team athletes compete in the virtual event. More information about the athletes who have been selected to participate will be posted on this page. Stay tuned!
