About the Cerritos Synchronettes

The Cerritos Synchronettes is a synchronized swimming team located in Southern California. The team was formed as a city team in 1984 after the '84 Olympics in Los Angeles. In 1996 the Synchronettes seperated from the City of Cerritos and became an independant club team under the same name. There still is a city team mainly for novice swimmers who later move onto the club team.

Since the team's beginning, the Cerritos Synchronettes has produced many accociation and regional champions as well as national level swimmers. In 1998, the team made its first ever appearance/trip at a national competition. A group of nine girls competed in the 1998 Baquacil Age Group Chamionships where they had a 12-13 duet place seventh, a 12-13 team place eleventh, and a 16-17 team place eighth. Since then, the team has qualified to compete in even more national competitions.

The Cerritos Synchronettes practice four days a week at the Cerritos Olympic Swim Center located in Cerritos, Ca. There are 20-30 team members ranging between the ages 6 and 17. They are coached by '96 Olympic Gold Medalist, Becky Dyroen-Lancer, along with Catherine Nelson. Assistant coaches are Michelle Africano and Jennifer Ferrer.

Interested swimmers are invited to attend practice on Modays and Wednesdays from 5:30pm-8:30pm, 6:30pm-8:30pm on Fridays, and 10:00am-12:00pm on Saturdays. Contact Catherine Nelson @ (714) 738-1425 for more information.
