WHITE

White level swimmers will learn to swim freestyle and backstroke proficiently, as well as get an introduction to butterfly and breaststroke. Coaches focus on kicking, side breathing, streamlining, safety skills, and dives. All classes are 45 minutes long, and the coaches are in the water with the swimmers during every class. Whites is a great place to start if your child is over 5 and wants to learn how to swim proficiently. No experience is necessary to join.

 

Age range: 5-18 years old
