Pre-Competitive Swim Program

This program is designed for keen aqua kids who intend to progress to our Competitive stream by learning speed swimming skills, strokes, starts and finishes. By skill development in practices and timed events at fun swim meets, these levels promote development through learning and experience in organized competitions. All practices are conducted at either the Jewish Community Centre or Brewer Centennial pools.


The Program

The program is divided into three groups corresponding to the age/capability of the swimmer. 


Swimmers must be at least 7 years old (max 8 years old) and have a swimming capability corresponding to a Swimmer 4 level. Must be able to do 25 meters (one length) of "recognizable" front crawl (arms recovering over the water, side breathing with little to no hesitation), and 25 meters of backstroke. Objective is to progress them to a Guppies level with efficient breathing and an introduction to breast stroke with whip kick.


Swimmers must be at least 7 years old and have a swimming capability corresponding to a minimum Swimmer 5. Must be able to do 50 meters (two lengths) of recognizable front crawl with continuous arms and breathing (arms recovering over the water, side breathing with no hesitation), 25 meters of backstroke, dolphin kick, and breast stroke with whip kick. 


Swimmers must have a swimming capability corresponding minimum Swimmer 7) and be between 8-11 years of age. Must be able to do 150 meters (6 lengths) continuous using a mixture of front crawl, backstroke, butterfly (development) and breast stroke (ankles outwards on the extension) AND swim 50 meters freestyle in 75 seconds or faster.
