Our DEVELOPMENTAL STROKE SCHOOL is devoted to competitive stroke instruction with an emphasis on balance in the water through specialized drills. This program is for 5 - 12 year olds. It is not a "beginner or novice" learn to swim program.  Swimmer(s) must be able to swim 1 lengths of the pool freestyle - no stopping/doggy paddle) and 1/2 length back stroke.  

Under the guidance of our staff, each swimmer will learn proper technique in the four competitive strokes & turns while having FUN along the way.  Our Stroke School is an excellent supplement to summer league programs or for anyone with a minimum time commitment.
