There is high demand for placement on the team this year. Therefore, we are offering a new training group desiged for children who are beginner swimmers and want to be on the swim team! The average age is 6-9 years old and there will be approximately 3 practices offered weekly (Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Sundays). Cost is $80 per month plus an annual $79 USA-Swimming membership and Insurance fee. We will set the maximum roster size at 15 participants in this new group. Please read the group description below. First practice is Tuesday Sep 28th. All practices will be held at the Dayton Raiders Aquatic Center (DRAC)
Average age 6-9 years old. Swimmers in this group may have swim lesson experienced and possibly been a member of a local neighborhood summer team. They are ready for gaining additional experience on stroke development, flip turns, and starts. Swimmers in the group will learn about what the four competitive strokes are and gain stamina through gradual increases of volume. Swimmers in this group will be prepared for higher level training groups if that is their desire. Swimmers in this group may choose to enter a local competition when they feel ready. This group is offered 3 practice times per week and there are no practice requirements. Swimmers can enroll and un-enroll from this group any month so long as space is available. Swimmers should attend practice with a competition suit, cap (optional), filled water bottle, and goggles each practice.
