Frequently Asked Questions -
Q - My kid doesn't swim that well, what should I do?
We require that kids entering our program can swim 25 yards comfortably. If they cannot do that, we recommend swim lessons either through PSD or the YMCA. If they can swim, it is still likely that they may have to work on their swimming. We offer co-membership with narrows swim club, where they can attend swim practices on the off days. Ask us more in person!
Q - What equipment do I need?
All swimmers need to have a competition swimsuit, ie jammers or speedo for boys and one piece polo or competition suit for girls. We prefer black. They should have goggles for our warmups. See our equipment page for more information.
