The Ducklings swim program is Metro Parks Tacoma's seasonal swim team. This team prepares swimmers who just finished lessons for our more experienced year round teams. We offer a Ducklings season eat each of our Metro Parks Tacoma pools each winter, spring, summer and fall.

Prerequisites: 25 yards Freestyle and 25 yards Backstroke

Curriculum Emphases: Swimmers will learn proper technique for breaststroke and butterfly, while improving technique in freestyle and backstroke. Swimmers will have the opportunity to participate in "special clinics" focusing on competitive starts. While swimmers are developing proper stroke technique, swimming fast is de-emphasized. Competitions are optional - parents and coaches will collaborate to make the best decision for each athlete.

Practice Frequency: There are two 60-minute practices each week during each 8-12 week season.

Approximate Age Range: 6-12

Price: Tacoma Residents-$124/season     Non-residents of Tacoma-$136/season
Financial Assistance is available for all participants who qualify for reduced school lunches. There are different application processes, depending on if you are a Tacoma City resident or not. For information, or to apply, please contact your pool manager.

Practice Schedule: Spring Session will start on Monday (4/9) or Tuesday (4/10) - depending on your practice group.  The Spring session will end on Wednesday (5/30) or Thursday (5/31).
