Black Marlin Swim Club is a program that is structured based upon the belief that to optimize each athletes opportunity to develop both as swimmers and as people, we need to offer training groups that center around a systematic progression of expectations and involvement. Fundamentals of all training groups are a love for swimming, a love for Black Marlin Swim Club (BMSC) and continued emphasis on technique and skill development. As swimmers age and develop physically and emotionally, their workload both in and out of the pool needs to increase. Often this physical challenge leads to swimmers learning how to respond to psychological challenges and how they need to rely on the support of their coaches, teammates and parents to address such challenges and overcome them.

The emphasis of Black Marlin Swim Club (BMSC) is long-term results and long-term involvement in the sport. At each level and for each swimmer the goals and objectives are specific. Training plans are based upon the needs of the swimmers participating in each group and with the long term goal of excellence in the pool and in life. As each child is different, he/she will progress at his/her own rate. All group assignments are at the discretion of coaches and are based on an understanding of each swimmers development and progression.

The sport of swimming can be learned starting around the age of 3 years. At this age, swimming can be taught as both a fun activity and, more importantly, a life skill. Instructors are in the water with the participants to aid them and ease them in their comfort levels within the water. They will aid, instruct, and correct strokes within the first 5-10 meters of the shallow end of the pool.   At this stage the primary focus will be learning the four strokes step by step. Learning to dive (starting in the deep end) is also introduced at this level.

Throughout each individuals progression and development as members of Black Marlin Swim Club, coaches will be reassessing group placement based upon a number of factors including providing the most ideal training environment (considering both ability and the importance of social networks). Also, as coaches, we reserve the right to make sure we are providing each swimmer with every opportunity to improve their skill level without “over training” and jeopardizing the ultimate long-term goal of excellence in the pool and in character. Any training and competition decisions are made by the coaches and will be made with every swimmers best interest in mind.
