Swim Fit Program
What is SwimFit?
SwimFit is a technique-based swimming fitness program that utilizes the same core principals of the West Coast Aquatics Competitive Team. W coaches will instruct swimmers on all four competitive strokes with the goal being to gain endurance through drills and kicking. Athletes will also be instructed on racing skills such as dives, turns, and streamlines. Everyone will leave feeling like they got a good workout and are part of a swim team. The end of completion of each session, the swimmers will have the opportunity to compete in a practice meet, which will provide a positive environment to dive from the starting blocks, practice racing, and show off newly learned skills
Why do SwimFit?
SwimFit is a great opportunity for athletes who want to continue swimming after the completion of their summer league, middle school or high school season. It is also ideal for athletes who participate in multiple sports as a means to continue their progression of skills and overall strength throughout the year. Every level of SwimFit aims to provide a positive and fun learning environment for developing swimmers.The SwimFit program can be the ideal avenue for swimmers to get onto the NAC competitive team, and ultimately is a great way to get introduced to the terminology, skills and technique-based progression used throughout the NAC programs. SwimFit can also be a way for swimmers to learn the 4 competitive strokes during each session, providing them with a great way to stay fit. For summer league swimmers, those coming from PreComp, and swimmers looking to get ready for the upcoming school season, SwimFit is the ideal stepping stone to continue development. At the completion of each session, coaches from the competitive team will work with athletes who have demonstrated progress, willingness, and the appropriate skills and strength to transition onto the competitive team and aid in that process
