The success of the Mini FISH is measured in the ability to swim all strokes well; when this is accomplished, successful Mini FISH will be able to swim a strong IM.  This is accomplished by focusing on the following objectives:

  • to encourage proper swim technique through positive reinforcement
  • to ensure that the competitive experience is a positive one
  • to develop a feeling of self-worth and accomplishment so that swimming can become an enjoyable lifelong sport.

Goals of Developmental Group:

  • Swim a 100 IM legally (regardless of time)
  • Perform legal turns for each stroke.
  • Kick 4x25 @ :45
  • Push off and streamline to flags underwater with dolphin kick
  • Acquire basic understanding of the pace clock
