New or Novice Swimmers: Our next beginner class will start in June of 2023. If your little mermaid or merman loves to swim and do dance or gymnastics, this might be the right sport for them! All swimmers joining our beginner class must be able to swim 25 yards each of freestyle, backstroke and breaststroke and tread water for two minutes. If you are unsure if your child can meet these requirements, contact our head coach, Cheryl Cook, to arrange for an evaluation through our Contact Us page. Class location and time are TBD. Your swimmer will need to be approved by an Austin Angelfish Coach before you register.
Founded in 1992, the Austin Angelfish is a year-round competitive artistic (synchronized) swimming team of athletes from Austin and the surrounding area.Team members range in age from 8-19 and compete in USA Artistic Swimming events in Novice and Age Group divisions in Texas and nationally. We offer high quality professional coaching and technique instruction for boys and girls of all ages and abilities.

All of our coaches, as members of USA Artistic Swimming, have access to the most comprehensive training and certification program for youth coaches of any sport in the United States. These amazing coaches help each athlete meet or exceed his or her personal goals for the year, learn important life skills, make new friends and have a lot of fun doing it! The hard work, commitment and togetherness put forth by our swimmers helps to build strong and lasting friendships. Once an Angelfish, always an Angelfish!
