The following groups are offered at this location:

GROUP 3 (10 & under novice) Swimmers will develop the four strokes, legal by USA Swimming standards. In addition, swimmers will learn how to do legal freestyle flip turns, legal finishes or turns for breaststroke and butterfly and will learn to be “start legal” for swim meet participation. Once a swimmer has learned these skills and is 9 or 10 years of age, the swimmer can move on to Group 4 Silver. Swimmers that are 8 and under and achieve 3 blue time standards, may also move up to Group 4 Silver. This group trains Monday-Friday afternoons during the school year and Monday-Friday mornings during the summer months.
