What is the Victor Swim Club program?

  • White: New members 18 years old and under

This is a short-term membership (2 week trial) so that swimmers and their parents can try out the Victor Swim Club and decide if it is right for them. If you do decide to continue with the Victor Swim Club, your child will be placed in the appropriate practice group based on the coach's assessment.

Developmental Program:

This is for swimmers younger than 11 years old. Swimmers will be taught the four competitive strokes, work on developing racing skills, and increase their endurance. A minimum of two practices per week is recommended.
