All Practices at The Pennington School Pool
Swimmers ages 5-7 (and/or coaches recommendation) can participate in Level 1 competitive swim team, eventually working towards becoming part of the level 2 team. At this stage kids should be able to swim one lap on their own. Coaches focus mostly on freestyle and backstroke and slowly introduce some breaststroke and butterfly drills. Body position, kicking and the fundamentals of each stroke is broken down through multiple drills. Endurance and strength training are slowly built up through repetition. Racing starts and flip turns are introduced at this level. Mini meets and other meets recommended by the group coach are strongly encouraged for this age group.
