Beginner Programs

Entry Level Swim Team

 

Little Blue Swim Team: 

     Deer Brooks Little Blue swim team is the entry level program for our swim teams.  Younger swimmers who struggle to complete the new swimmer evaluation, 1/2 lap of moderately strong free style and ability to do one other stroke, are welcomed into our Little Blue program.  Little Blue’s practices occur daily (M-F) 10-10:30 starting the first day of morning practices.  Little Blue swimmers can participate in the last kick board are of the season.  The Little Blue team costs $50 for the season. Parents can choose to purchase the team suit if they wish, but it is not required.  Little Blue swimmers will receive a team shirt and cap.

 

Skipjack Swim Team: 

     Deer Brook's Skipjack swim team, formerly known as developmental, is the stepping stone between Little Blues and the swim team.  Younger swimmers learn the 4 strokes in a learning environment with our swim coaches, who get into the water with the children to teach them the basics of swimming.   Skipjack practices occur daily (M-F) 12-12:30 starting the first day of morning practices.  Skipjack swimmers can choose to participate in B meets, which occur on Wednesday evenings, to get a taste of the competitive aspect of swimming in a laid-back, non-competitive setting.  The Skipjack team costs $50 for the season. Parents can choose to purchase the team suit if they wish, but it is not required.  Skipjack swimmers will receive a team shirt and cap.
