The Explorer Group is for young
swimmers (Age 4-8) that have little experience in the water. While
there are no set requirements for registration with the Explorer
Group, we do recommend that swimmers have completed Level 3 of our
Group Swim Lessons Program or an equivalent with another swim
program, as well as general comfort in the water. We want to ensure
these practices are productive for all involved, and part of that
is a swimmer being comfortable in the water.
Swimmers in this group will be
introduced to all four strokes in a small group setting. Swimmers
will learn skills that range from how to kick and breathe properly,
all the way through full stroke swimming. Instruction takes places
in small groups with instructors in the water at all times. There
are two primary focus points for this group, teaching basic skills
that swimmers will need as they progress through the program, and
enrich the swimmers love for the water.
Explorer sessions will be
offered in 2-month blocks:
Fall Session: September &
Winter Session 1*: November &
Session due to Holidays ($75/month)
Winter Session 2: January &
Spring Session: April &
Summer Session: June &
Explorer is not offered during
March or August due to team breaks.
Located at the Indoor Aquatic
Center, you'll have the option of attending practices on either
Monday/Wednesday or Tuesday/Thursday from 7:00-7:30pm. One Session
lasts 8 weeks. The cost of the first month is $120 and each
subsequent month costs $100. This will be charged to your team
account on the 1st of each month for the session you
select. The first month cost includes the team dues and an annual
USA Swimming FLEX Membership registration fee ($20). Swimmers
moving to the Bronze group will be charged the difference for a
Full Membership ($75) at the time of promotion. All swimmers
will need to participate is a swim suit and goggles.
