The Pennridge Aquatic Club is excited to offer 3 different practice levels to enthusiastic swimmers ages 5 to 18. We have three levels that meet the needs for all aspiring swimmers. All practice placement and movement are made by the Pennridge Aquatic coaching staff.
Green - A novice and inexperienced swimmer who needs stroke correction on the four strokes. Focus on fundamentals (stroke technique, starts, turns, and finishes). Ages range from 5 to 10 years of age. Instruction is given in intervals of ½ lap or full lap intervals. The overall goal is to create swimmers who are knowledgeable on their strokes before training.
White – A swimmer with previous swim team experience and/or younger experienced swimmer who can swim all the strokes legally. Focus on improving fundamentals (Stoke technique, starts, turns, finishes). Short length sets with a lot of drilling. Focus on technique and mastering legal strokes for competition. Age range from 7-11 years of age.
Black – An experienced swimmer who is in 8th grade or lower who has the ability and mental maturity to train at high speeds and handle challenging yardage. Selection for this group will require consistent effort, commitment, and require daily attendance. Teaching and technique are still provided but a quicker pace. Age range from 10 to 14 years of age.
Diving – We welcome all enthusiastic divers in the community wanting to learn and improve their diving skills and be a part of the Gator program.
