STROKE SCHOOL is a year round continuation of our LEARN TO SWIM program & introduction to the TSUNAMI swim team. STROKE SCHOOL is a 30 minute practice designed to develop your child’s swimming endurance, as well as, refining stroke technique.
Even though your child may feel comfortable in a swimming pool environment, they need to develop muscle strength and lung capacity.
What would happen if they fell out of a motor boat, sailboat, surfboard, kayak, tube on a river, paddle board? Fell off a dock, river bank, or caught up in a heavy surf? Could they swim to safety?
Stroke SCHOOL is a swim practice, offered year round & is a non-competitive segue to the sport of swimming & the Sarasota Tsunami Swim Team. While your child is developing their swimming skills, they may decide that swimming is the sport they love. AND we would love to have them be part of our team.

(Children 9 + years refer to the Varsity team on TSUNAMI SWIM TEAM programs)
