Baby Marlin Pre Team $90.00/month
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.
