Merrillville Marlins Swim
Swimming is not only a great sport for physical exercise and
development, but as in any team sport it helps build each swimmers
self-confidence, motivational skills and teaches each child what
team work can achieve. Learning about oneself, while enjoying the
sport is the most important part of the swimming experience.
The coaching staff includes a range of experience and
specialties. We are committed to providing an environment where
each child can develop each of the four competitive strokes while
having fun and achieving their long and short term goals. We are
confident that with hard work, committment and a dedicated coaching
staff that each child will excel this season.
The four competitive strokes are the freestyle, backstroke,
breaststroke, and butterfly. We understand that not all swimmers
are currently able to swim each. However, it is our job to assist
every child in doing so. Swimmers will be grouped based on their
abilities and will practice with swimmers of similar skill.
Practices will be spent training for swim meets while continually
developing each swimmer/s stroke technique, efficiency and
perfecting each swimmer's starts, turns, and finishes. Each swimmer
comes to the Marlins with different skills and goals. All that we
hope for is that each swimmer tries their best during practice and
during any given race.
