 Over 40 years of swimming excellence


Georgetown Indoor Pool - 70 Guelph Street, Georgetown, ON L7G 3Z5 (Behind Georgetown District High School)

Intro (Ages 6 and Above)

After Mini-Fins, it is on to the Halton Hills Blue Fins Intro Program.  This twice per week 60 minute program is based on Swimming Canada's Long Term Athlete Development Plan (LTAD) Stage 2 - Fundamentals.  It is designed for swimmers ages 6 and above who are ready to practice in a group environment, must be able to swim multiple lengths (25m) of freestyle and backstroke with appropriate rest, and be ready to be introduced to breaststroke and butterfly. 

The focus of the Intro Program is to build a passion and love of the sport of swimming.  The Intro Group will swim individually, but work together as a team to learn the four basic swimming strokes (freestyle, backstroke, breaststroke, butterfly).  The swimmers will improve their physical fitness and build endurance by swimming a full length of the pool (25m) and then progress to multiple lengths of the pool.  The Intro Program will also introduce swim equipment used in training such as kick boards, pull buoys, and fins, and the swimmers will learn how to dive off the blocks and complete a flip turn.

The Intro Program will also provide the opportunity for swimmers to test their skills by participating in both In-House swim meets at the Georgetown Indoor Pool and some development meets in the nearby communities of Milton, Guelph, Orangeville, and Caledon.  Although the Blue Fin Family encourages swimmers to show their team spirit, and cheer on their team mates through competition, attendance at swim meets is not mandatory.

Can parents watch on deck? It is our experience that it is best for parents to watch from our viewing area.  If there is a problem, one of our coaches will come and get you to help on deck.
