2018 Spring/Summer Mighty Ducks
Love to swim? Ready to learn to swim like a Champion?
If you said ?YES!? then you are ready for our Mighty Ducks Squad. In the Mighty Ducks you will learn advanced competitive stroke skills, starts and turns. You will also participate in our ?Age Group Challenge Mini Meets? to test yourself.
The Mighty Ducks squad is for young swimmers (generally 5-10 yrs) who have progressed beyond basic swim lessons and would like to make further progress to our competitive team.
Swimmers in the Mighty Ducks must be at least 5 years old, complete a skill evaluation with a LFSC coach (usually Coach Laurel), and be able to complete the following abilities:
- 25 meters of freestyle with correct side breathing and arms completely out of the water
- 25 meters of backstroke with horizontal body position, arms out of the water and a basic backstroke kick
- comfort in a group learning environment, basic "Water Smarts" and be able to use a kickboard
- other skills as may be necessary
The goal of the Mighty Ducks Squad is to build on the skills of the Mini Ducks, swim lessons or other competitive team experience. Most swimmers progress to the Yellow Squad after about 18 months in the Mighty Ducks.
2018 Spring/Summer Mini Ducks
The Mini Ducks is an advanced swim lesson for children ages 5+ who are comfortable (floating) in the water but have not mastered arm strokes and breathing in freestyle or backstroke arms and kicking. In addition these swimmers need basic "Water Smarts" and are able to use a kickboard.
The goal of these lessons is to build on learning and listening skills, increase comfort in the water, let children explore movement, and put them on a path to joining the swim team.
Teaching Fundamental Body Position, back stroke arms and kicking, and rhythmic freestyle side breathing are the target goals of the Mini Ducks. All swimmers must be able to independently use locker rooms and observe facility and team rules.
