Swim Levels

SWIM LEVELS

Sea Devils Swimming offers training and practice groups for swimmers of all ages and ability levels. Our goal is to offer age specific training for all of our athletes geared towards challenging each individual and developing each individual to the best of their abilities.
 
All swimmers new to our club will need an in-pool assessment by one of our coaches and will be assigned to the appropriate level.  At a minimum, swimmers should be able to swim one full length on their front and one full length on their back without any floatation devices.
