TECHNICAL FOCUS for Week 1, September 2018: Freestyle and Backstroke Kick
COMMUNITY SERVICE: We had 20 volunteers and 10 runners participate in the Firecracker 5K at I'On to support the I Got Legs charity. Our pink cap fundraiser to support Hollings Cancer Center will begin in August.
Swim Charleston is committed to developing swimmers and empowering them to lead. Our year round competitive swim team offers high quality professional coaching and technical instruction for ages 4-19. We operate as a non-profit club and we are run by a Board of Directors which meets regularly and receives help from the Parent Advisory Committee.
Young swimmers under the age of eight must be able to swim at least 25 yards of freestyle and 25 yards of backstroke. Older swimmers should have experience with all four competitive strokes. We seek to provide every participant on our team an opportunity to improve swimming skills and achieve success at his or her level of ability while building leadership skills and learning valuable life lessons. Our educator coaches have an average of more than 12 years experience coaching young swimmers. Our unique and consistent teaching progression will help every swimmer to build self-confidence. 100% of our 2018 graduating seniors plan to swim in college for a varsity college team.
We have announced three locations for 2018-19: Wild Dunes (6 lanes), Daniel Island (6 lanes), and Ion (8 lanes). All are beautiful outdoor heated pools and we are very grateful for these partnerships!
Swim Charleston requires 30 days notice of cancellation. As a non-profit we pass on all processing fees to our membership to ensure that funds collected go directly to facility fees and salaries. Each youth year-round swimmer will receive 3 silicone caps and 3 t-shirts each year.
