Ducklings Swim Program

The Ducklings program for members of Norwood only.. It is a mini swim team designed for swimmers age 5-8 that are not quite ready for swim team.  Cost is $75. Ducklings is a FOUR week long program that meets Mon-Fri from 11:00-11:30am from June 25th to July 20th, 2018. The Ducklings have an exhibition swim at the start of the final Norwood home swim meet on Thursday, July 19th 2018. Almost all of our Ducklings at some point go on to join our swim team, the Norwood Ducks.

The Ducklings program is led by our swim team coaches in the water.  Ducklings is designed to be a pre-swim team program, where swimmers learn and practice advanced swimming skills.  Ducklings is not designed to be a group swim lesson where basic swimming skills are taught. 

In order to be in Ducklings, a swimmer must successfully demonstrate all the skills taught in Level 2 of our group lessons program with good comfort and body position: a front and back float without assistance, kicking on the front and back without assistance, crawl stroke arms on the front, rolling the body from front to back and back to front.

On the last day of Ducklings, Friday-July 20th there will be a potluck style BBQ Lunch with the coaches!
