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.
