The Makos USA Swimming Program
The Makos USA Swimming Program is for swimmers ready to move on to more swimming opportunities! More practices and competitions are offered on our fun, family oriented team.
Swimmers must meet the basic blue sharks requirements of being able to swim at least one length of free and backstroke.
Swimmers are encouraged to swim in swimming meets, but not required with the exception of our highest group level swimmers. We provide "FUN" novice meet opportunities as well as USA Swimming level competitions throughout the region and country.
Our team focuses on learning the proper stroke technique through drills at the beginner level and then progresses on to more advanced drills, cardiovascular and strength training as the swimmer matures in the sport. Our goal is to create well rounded swimmers and build the swimmer into the sport of swimming for a lifetime of enjoyment.
We focus on building the the individual child and encourage them to attain their own personal goals inside and outside of the pool in a positive environment. We also encourage goal setting and community volunteer work.
Our certified and background checked staff includes some of the most experienced and professionally educated coaches in the Gainesville area. Our coaches continue their education about the sport of swimming and coaching throughout the year by attending clinics and conferences through USA swimming and the American Swimming Coaches Association.
