Midtown Mystiques Synchronized Swimming Team (Newport News, VA)

About Us

 The team started in July of 2001 at the Midtown Aquatic Center. The team, called Marlinmaids at time, was a tiny but strong synchro team built on fun and family! By 2002 the girls and our gung-ho boy, brought home many medals and ribbons with big smiles on their faces!


Now after 14 years and a name change, the Midtown Mystiques are a nationally competitive team and are still built on the basis of fun and family!

We live by the motto:  "I dont want to swim fast, and I don't like swimming fast! I want to swim pretty!"
