For the last two weeks, 16 swimmers from various clubs across the country have been in Ostia, Italy for USA Synchro's Olympic Development Program.

This program invites young athletes looking to make their way onto a National Team by taking them to an international training camp to help further develop skills needed to make one of those teams. This program is treated like a National Team training camp to give the swimmers more insight into what it takes to be on the team and how those athletes are training.

ODP is lead by a group of extremely experienced coaches, Sandra Montes from Spain, Tammy McGregor from California, Camille Albrecht from Florida and Hayan Kim from Virginia.
