Our introductory pre-competitive program is designed to prepare swimmers ages 5 to 14 to graduate to our first team level, Piranhas. The focus is on developing a strong foundation in stroke techniques: freestyle, backstroke, breaststroke and butterfly kick.
Prerequisites: Swimmer must be able to enter the water independently, float on back and do basic freestyle with big arms partially or fully across a 25-yard pool. Some advanced Tadpoles may enter meets at the coach’s discretion.
Tadpole lessons are held in 45-minute classes. Classes are typically divided into beginning and advanced groups. Swimmers are not required to attend all classes in a session, but frequent attendance does result in faster progress. Classes are limited to 15 swimmers per instructor.
