GCY Junior Makos
This is GCY's newest program, designed to prepare kids for summer league swim teams! Our target audience are those future swimmers in their final year of preschool, who want to learn to swim using the foundations of the four competitive strokes. Swimmers also learn to dive and will eventually be introduced to flipping and turn work as skills progress. Classes are one day per week taught by experienced coaches who are in the water with the swimmers. Participants should be comfortable in the water and have some experience going under water, but no other minimum skill levels are required. Kids up to age 6 are accepted should there be any home school interest!
Coaches are in the water with students, teaching them how to swim through the fundamentals of competitive swimming. Each swimmer will progress at his/her individual pace in a comfortable learning environment. The program is designed as a 9-month, 1-day per week class where when finished, the swimmer will be ready for a successful summer swim team experience!
