5 MOST ASKED QUESTIONS OF KC SWIM ACADEMY and INFANT AQUATICS
DOES KCSA FOCUS ON STROKE WORK or JUST A BUNCH OF LAPS
We believe stroke work is vital!
- Each practice, the coach has a specific skill that they wish to cover. Stroke drills are demonstrated and explained.
- On most weekends, we offer individual stroke filming with our coaches 1:1
- On many Saturdays, we offer MINI CLINICS
DO SWIMMERS HAVE TO ATTEND PRACTICES
Each practice, the coaches work on a specific stroke drill plus some form of aerobic workout. We understand that most of our swimmers do multiple sports/activities. That is why the coaches work on specific areas for each week and build on that throughout the season.
DO I HAVE TO ATTEND MEETS
AGE GROUP, JO and HS ELITE are competitive programs. Meets give the swimmer, coach and parents important feedback on the swimmers progress. This is especially true for all levels. If your swimmer underperforms in meets, this is an area that both the swimmer and coach can work on. VERY VITAL ASPECT : Swimmers gain confidence and experience at meets
WHY DO I NEED TO DO FUNDRAISING
Every AGE GROUP, JO, HS ELITE and HS PREP member of our program is required to participate in our fundraising. Our training/program fees pay for 75% of our program. The rest we do with minimal fundraising, which are all tax deductible as we are a not for profit 501(c)3 Corporate Entity.
CAN PARENTS ATTEND PRACTICES and TALK TO COACH
We welcome you to attend practices from time to time: However, we ask you NOT to interrupt the coach while they are running practices or coach your swimmer from the sidelines.
Swim practices are GROUP practices. If your swimmer isn’t getting “it" or needs additional work, signup for our weekend FILMING sessions and/or MINI CLINICS. We recognize that 85% of our kids are visual learners so we began FILMING and MINI CLINICS.
KCSA is dedicated to preventing drowning through swim instruction. We are the only swim team in the KC area which offers the internationally recognized Infant Aquatic program of self rescue. Help us spread the word by encouraging your friends and family to learn to swim and to prevent this needless and avoidable tragedy!
