The Mini Whomper Program is Returning
for the 2021 Season
Information for the 2021 season will be available soon!
Cheryl, Gillian, and Coach Kelly Rose are working closely with the Highlands Board to address multiple options we are considering for our Turtles this summer and our commitment to them, as well as the safety guidelines and considerations around the opening of the pool for the summer. Please be patient as we work through those details as well as registration questions and concerns you might have. We will share information with you in regards to summer swim opportunities in the upcoming weeks as more information becomes available to us.
The Mini Whompers Developmental Swim Program is designed to provide a sound foundation in the proper technique of all four competitive strokes for swimmers five-to-eight years old. The Mini Whompers program focuses on correct breathing patterns, endurance, and provides an introduction to NVSL competitive swimming in a fun and positive environment. Swimmers in the Mini Whompers Developmental Swim Program must be able to swim unassisted 25-meters across the pool. Mini Whompers may advance to the Swim Team when they are able to meet the Swim Team eligibility requirements and at the discretion of our head coaching staff. The maximum number of Mini Whompers for Summer 2021 is 48.
2021 8 & Under Assessment for Mini Whompers
Mini Whompers Practice Schedule
Please make sure your swimmer has a good pair of goggles, a personal kickboard, and a swim cap. These items should be brought with them every day at practice. Also, your Mini Whomper will feel most comfortable if they are a female to wear a one piece (no bikinis, tankinis or skirted bottoms) or a male to wear jammers or swim briefs (no swim trunks). Shirts and rash guards cannot be worn during practice. They affect how a swimmer’s body feels going through the water and should not be worn during practice.
In order to ensure the safety of all of our swimmers, we must insist that parents refrain from congregating around the pool lanes during practice. Please note, that parents may not be able to be present at practices this summer. If parents have questions or concerns, please send the coaches an email, give them a call, or see them after practice. Thank you for helping to keep all swimmers focused and safe!
