Half Lappers

Half Lappers - *** NO Half Lappers during Summer 2020 due to Covid-19.

The Half Lapper program is designed for children 4, 5, and 6 years old to become stronger, more confident swimmers.  Many of our older swimmers started as Half Lappers.  Half Lappers is a program to enhance the children’s swimming and help move them into their stroke work.  A parent must be present at all practices. The program runs two weeks and practices are held from 12:00noon – 12:30pm (4 days a  week). The program is limited to 20 swimmers. A complete calendar of dates and times will be available at registration.  Half Lappers must be 4 years old by May 1st.  In addition, they must have swim experience.  This is not intended to be a private swim lesson, but to prepare children to advance to full scale swim team.  The child must feel comfortable in the water and ready for instructions.  Half Lappers are an important part of our swim team and will swim at home meets with helpers in the water prior to the meet starting.
