There are three significant competitions each year in New Zealand (run according to FINA Rules), of which Alpine Synchro is eligible to attend two :
- South Island Artistic Swimming Championships
- NZ National Artistic Swimming Championships
Athletes who achieve well in these competitions can represent their Club overseas, or can represent New Zealand at Oceanias, Junior World Championships or the Olympic Games. At this point in time, Artistic Swimming will not be featured at the next Commonwealth Games but may return to the program in the future.
School competitions are run as part of the North and South Island Championships and the NZ National Championships.
These include routines as solos, duets and teams, where athletes can represent their intermediate or secondary school. Figures are not part of schools.
