FREESTYLE - Swimmers will be required to demonstrate they can swim one lap of the pool without stopping.
BACKSTROKE * BREASTSTROKE * BUTTERFLY - Ability in these strokes will be evaluated.
Practice for the Novice group is 1 day a week, Saturdays from 4:00-5:00 PM for a 10-week schedule. All practices are conducted by United States Swimming certified coaches.
At the first 2 practices, our coaches will re-evaluate the swimmers. Upon re-evaluation and availability, the more advanced swimmers of the group will be given the opportunity to advance to the 3-day-a-week program. Swimmers who do not advance will attend the balance of the Saturday practices, a total of 10 practice sessions, as indicated on the Novice Schedule.
What type of commitment is expected?
A Novice swimmer will be expected to attend practice for the 10-week session. At the completion of the first 10-week session, the novice swimmer can continue into the next 10-week session. All sessions are $295.
Fall Session - Starts in September - 10 Weeks/10 Sessions
Winter Session - Starts in January - 10 weeks/10 Sessions
Summer Session - Starts in June - 6 Weeks/18 Sessions (3 times per week)
A Developmental swimmer is expected to be at practice 3 days per week. All practices are 1 hour, with a 15 minute stretching/warm-up prior to the start of swim. The practice schedule for Developmental level and above is on the Practice Calendar.
With the exception of the Novice swimmers, your child may be entered into several swim meets during the year, which are held on the weekends. These are full 1/2 day commitments.
A high level of commitment is expected from both swimmer and parents.
