Our Year-Round Groups:


The "Minnows"

This is our entry level group for ages 5 - 8. A young athlete must be able to swim 1 lap freestyle and 1 lap backstroke unassisted to start in this group.  It may be recommended that a swimmer take a few swim lessons first before they join this group.  When ready, Minnows swimmers may begin to attend local, low-key competitions.
