The club offers non-competitive and competitive programs for different ages and skill levels. Volunteering, fundraising and officiating will be expected from each family. All new swimmers to the club must be evaluated. This will help the coaches to select the correct program for each athlete based on their abilities. The final decision for the placement of a swimmer is the responsibility of the coaches.
Let the COACH coach!
The coach is the only one qualified to judge a swimmer’s performance and technique. Your role as a parent is to provide support.
The best way to help children achieve their goals and reduce the natural fear of failure is through positive reinforcement.
No one likes to make a mistake and if your child does make one, remember that this is a learning experience.
Encourage all efforts, and point out the things done well. As long as the best effort was given, you should make the child feel like a winner.
