SCAT NON COMPETITIVE SWIM TEAM
SEASONAL Pre Requisites:
All Swimmers in our Seasonal group must have completed Level 5 at Kedron Aquatics Swim Lessons or Level 4 from the Peachtree City Dive Center. These swimmers are able to:
· Shallow angle dive into deep water
· Swim 50 yards freestyle (front crawl) and 25 yards of Backstroke, Butterfly and Breaststroke.
SEASONAL Required Equipment:
Suit – We recommend one piece for girls and board shorts or jammers for boys. This is not required but if boys trunks have large pockets they can be heavy to swim with. Please make sure the trunks have tie strings or a snug waist. This helps keep the suit in place when they push off a wall or dive in.
Fins – long flexible fin (not a scuba fin) These can be ordered at www.swimoutlet.com We recommend the Sporti brand – approx. $20
Cap – if your swimmers hair will be in their eyes when it is wet. It is difficult to teach proper head position and breathing when hair is in swimmers eyes or mouth.
Goals of the Pre-Competitive Team:
· · Improve the basics of the four competitive strokes
· · Develop the beginning skills for proper turns
· · Push off and streamline to flags with a dolphin kick
· · Have Fun Swimming
Workouts are offered four evenings per week Monday thru Thursday. You may register for as many nights a week as you prefer.
Practices are 45 minutes in duration.

Seasonal Swimmers receive coaching and instruction from the SCAT coaching staff.
Seasonal is a great option for those who want to continue the fun of summer league swimming during the school year, or build on skills learned in other swimming programs. Swimmers may use the Seasonal program as a stepping stone to Year Round SCAT. We accept swimmers ages 6 to 16 that meet the prerequisites above.
What goes on during the session and classes?
During the session, classes are 45 minutes long, and include a few minutes of stretching and warming up before strokes and drills are taught. SCAT strives to provide a low coach-to-swimmer ratio for Seasonal! This ensures your swimmer will receive the attention he/she needs in order to be successful.
Seasonal is a technique-based program. We will work with your swimmer on all four competitive strokes (freestyle, backstroke, breaststroke, and butterfly). Your swimmer will also be introduced to racing skills such as dives, turns, and streamlines. Swimmers will leave each class feeling like they got a good workout
