Developmental Group - (Red, White, Blue)

These small groups serve the needs of beginning swimmers who are acclimated to water and ready to begin learning competitive strokes. These groups also serve those who want to explore swimming but who are not ready for the commitment of a fully competitive group, and those athletes who are preparing to become competitive swimmers. Athletes in this group will have the opportunity to swim three days per week for an hour. This group is permitted and encouraged to attend appropriate swim meets based on coach’s recommendation during our competitive season.
Developmental Group Coach: Jon Karr
