Greenfield Community Aquatic Team now offers a FlexSwim Program for those not quite ready for the competitive swim program.
Our session based schedule allows for a shorter commitment. This program allows for the freedom to do multiple activities. The parents will choose the number of days a week your swimmer attends class. There are no monthly fees. Your session cost is a per class fee x the number of days a week chosen x the number of weeks in the session. Your level of commitment is your decision. There will be a $50 registration fee per year. The club year runs from September - August.
We offer 3 groups for the Flex Swim Program.
Cougar Cubs - Swimmers age 5 - 8
Monday - Thursday 6:15 - 6:45
Pumas - Swimmers age 7 - 10
Monday - Thursday 6:15 - 7:00
Panthers - Swimmers age 11 - 14
Monday - Thursday 7:00 - 8:00
GCAT does have minimum requirements for the Flex Swim program and for each group.
A swimmer must be able to complete a 25-yard legal Freestyle and 25-yard legal Backstroke.
Not sure what a legal Freestyle and legal Backstroke look like. Here are a few of the minimum requirements for each of the 2 strokes:
- Face must remain in the water during strokes until the breath.
- Breathing is done to the side without stopping your arm stroke or lifting the head.
- Arms must recover over the water.
- Both arms must be straight and must recover over the water.
- Swimmer must be able to remain on their back for the entire length of the pool.
- Swimmer must be able to keep face above the surface of the water.
