Bronze Group:  (Basics of Swim Practice)

($90 Per Month)

Overview:

Our Bronze group is the stage of Tiger swimming where we begin to introduce what it means to be a competitive swimmer.  A heavy emphasis is put onto technique development and kicking strength.  We believe that it is better to do fewer laps with good technique rather than doing more laps with poor technique.  We introduce the meaning of a “set” and how to use the pace clock during one.

Eligibility:

  • Age 7 & Up

Attendance Requirement:

  • None

Practices:

  • 4 practices per week
  • 1 hour per practice

Required Equipment:

  • Goggles
  • Swim Cap: If hair comes to or below ears
  • Kickboard

    • Money saving tip: If fins are a little too big, have your swimmer wear an old pair of socks with them.  Socks will fill in the extra space and as they get older, their feet will fill in the fins

  • Understanding of competitive stroke techniques in all four strokes (Butterfly/Backstroke/Breaststroke/Freestyle)
  • Basic concept of flip and open turns
  • Understanding the role of a pace clock and how to use it
