TRSC's 2018 Mini-Session #1
Three Rivers Swim Club (TRSC) will soon present its first Mini-Session of 2018, starting Tuesday, April 3, at Rome High School's salt-system indoor pool. Specific dates are April 3, 5, 7, 10. 12, 14, 17, 19, and 21.
TRSC Mini-Sessions are short, three-week, nine-hour programs in swimming technique that the club offers the greater Rome community. Typically there is one Mini-Session each month from April to September, usually starting the first Tuesday of the month.
These programs are for novice swimmers ages 7 to17 years old who can already swim in some fashion but who want to quickly get much more skilled than ever before.
Mini-Session participants learn the techniques necessary for good backstroke, freestyle, butterfly, breaststroke, dives, turns and underwater breakouts.
The classes, taught by a USA Swimming instructor along with a few of the club's advanced swimmers, are intensive, fun, and absolutely non-competitive.
Applicants must 1) be at least 7 years old, and 2) be able to swim in some fashion, unassisted and without holding onto lanelines, for 25 yards.
Instructors expect students to be attentive and respectful in class.
Typical class size is 10-20 swimmers.
The Mini-Session classes are one hour long each, and there are nine all together. They meet on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 4:30--5:30 p.m. and on Saturdays at 9:00-10:00 a.m.
Occasionally minor schedule changes are necessary.
Note: There is lots of review from one hour to the next so missing one or two of the nine classes does not hinder overall progress. Most families have to miss a couple.
Cost for all nine hours is $95/swimmer. Fitted goggles are $15.
TRSC Mini-Sessions are designed to be stand-alone experiences. However, for those swimmers who want to pursue the sport, the Mini-Sessions will serve as key preparation for TRSC's year-round program (the "Regular" Session).
Most youngsters do at least two Mini-Sessions before the coaches feel they are ready for that year-round program. Occasionally, however, an older Mini-Session swimmer ( 9 or over) will be prepared after just one Mini-Session.
To reserve your child's spot in the April Mini-Session, pre-registration is required. A registration form is available as an attachment below.
Please print a copy of it, fill it out by hand, and send it and your payment to Three Rivers Swim Club, P.O.1151, Rome, GA 30162.
Best submit the form well in advance since the classes sometimes reach capacity quickly. A coach will contact you when your child is on the April roster. Priority is given to previous Mini-Session participants.
If you have other questions, or wish to have your child's current skill level evaluated, you may contact Coach Coville through the website's Contact tab.
