The minimum skill requirements for Coho are: Individuals ages 5 and over must be able to swim 1 length of freestyle with rhythmic breathing (face in the water, turning the head to the side to breathe), 1 length of backstroke, demonstrate basic breaststroke, be able to go underwater to the bottom of the pool in the shallow end, and be comfortable swimming in the deep end. Swimmers who can successfully complete this criterion will be placed in a group based on age and ability.

We focus on helping swimmers of all ages and abilities have fun, develop friendships, set goals, and experience success in the best possible team setting. We aim to instill a sense of Spirit, Character and Pride in all participants, and we strive to assist our swimmers in becoming outstanding individuals in all aspects of life, even beyond their athletic achievements.
