RED

Red level swimmers focus on improving breaststroke and butterfly techniques as well as competitive turns and dives. Coaches also incorporate endurance sets that work on kicking, freestyle, and backstroke. Reds have 3 1-hour practices a week. The coaches are in the water every class but do spend a little bit of each class on deck watching from above the water. To join Reds, a swimmer must complete the requirements listed here and have approval from the Minnow School Coordinator. 

Age range: 5-18 years old
