We want to first thank you from the bottom of our hearts for stepping into this battle with us for the past few months as we fought for our program to be reinstated. With facts, opinions, and statements, we fought the good fight with an incredibly strong army. For that, we are beyond proud.

That being said, it is with a conquered heart that we let you all know the university has stated their decision to cut all funding and remove coaching positions is final. Therefore, this era of the Lindenwood University Synchronized Swimming team has officially come to an end and it is time to move forward.

We encourage you to take one step further into our program by watching this video as we honor this era of LU Synchro.

It has been a tradition of ours to hold a positive circle at the end of every practice or competition, in which we each go around and say one positive thing that had happened that day regardless of the practice or competition’s outcome. We ask that you join us in honoring the Lindenwood Synchronized Swimming program by posting your positive about this team and help us celebrate the legacy that has been created over the past 11 years.

With love,
Your LU Synchro Team - The Past and The Present

- Over ½ of our student athletes were recognized with a 3.5 or above GPA, making us one of the highest GPA’s of Student Life Sports.
- 31 different countries from around the world have been represented throughout the program’s history.

- The program broke a 32 year streak between Division I schools to become the 2014 Collegiate National Champions.

***HOW TO SUPPORT LU SYNCHRO***

We want to thank you all for your support over the last 24 hours. We have received hundreds of texts, calls, emails, messages from you and we could not be more grateful.

As we continue to look into next steps, it has become evident that self funding this program is not a long term solution while maintaining the elite caliber of athleticism it has shown in the past 11 years. This is mainly due to the fact that we do not have a pool on campus, and the amount of money that it requires to rent pool space with additional expenses is beyond extreme. Secondly, with a majority of our athletes being international, they are not able to work legally in the US therefore leaving them without the means to pay for the expenses.

That being said, we have made the decision to stand up, strong and united, to voice facts, concerns, and opinions in an effort to revert the universities decision so that funding can be reinstated for our program to continue.

You can help by voicing your opinion to the University. PLEASE SEND AN EMAIL DIRECTLY TO the Vice President of Athletics, Brad Wachler, and CC the Interim President of the University, Art Johnson in addition to the Dean of Students, Shane Williamson, and Director of Residential Life, Terry Russell -

It is with an extremely heavy and broken heart that we let you all know that as of this morning, Lindenwood University has decided to no longer fund the synchronized swimming team therefore the program as an official sport for the university no longer exists. With new presidential leadership and multiple cuts across all departments within the university, we have been told this was purely a financial decision.

The university has given us the option to self fund and run the program on our own if we choose to do so. However, a huge additional expense in our program are pool rental costs as we do not have a pool on campus. In addition to this, a majority of our team is international, therefore we would need to be funded mostly through donations.

Our program has existed to reach young adults all around the world through the fierce and unwavering belief that we are capable beyond measure. We have touched those within our community and have spread the LU spirit around the world, and we and we want to continue to do so. If you or anyone you know would be willing to support us, please directly message our page.

We want to thank you all for the support that you have given our program throughout the past 11 years. We have defined and proved ourselves to be a relentless and determined group full of heart, passion, and dedication to this sport and those standing behind, beside, and in front of us.

This is not the end of our legacy as we will carry this program with us wherever we go from here.
