The primary focus of this level is to introduce new athletes to the sport of competitive swimming and prepare them for successful participation in our year-round Age Group training program. In the Developmental Level, swimmers will have the opportunity to learn all four competitive strokes to USA Swimming standards. Coaches use a variety of drills and games to break the stroke down in to smaller parts to help emphasis basic mechanics. Starts and turns for each stroke are also a component of the instruction for this level. Our enthusiastic coaching staff will share their passion for the water and begin to develop the well-adjusted student-athlete-citizen the Liverpool Jets Swim Club seeks to promote.
The Developmental Level is our entry-level training group. As a prerequisite, all swimmers entering this level should have completed level 4 in our lesson program OR have the ability to swim 25 yards freestyle and 25 yards backstroke. Although this level will primarily consist of athletes between the ages of 6-11 years of age, an athlete’s ability will play a large role in their placement.
The Developmental level consists of three 8 to 11-week sessions offered in the fall, winter, and summer. The practice schedule will have three 45-minute to one-hour practices per week. Swimmers are encouraged to attend 2-3 practices per week for best results.
