**Due to COVID-19 restrictions on the 2020 season, Minis are invited to participate in any social events organized by the team but will not participate in any coached practices.**
The Minis Team is our developmental team, coached by teen members of the Somerset Dolphins. Minis is open to Somerset children ages 4-7 who are able to participate in a group setting and are comfortable in the water – those who have no problem putting their face in the water and can stand or swim independently in the shallow end. The Coaches will help Minis learn 3 strokes – kickboard, freestyle and backstroke – and they show off their skills at a Minis Meet at the end of the Minis season. To participate in Minis, children must be age 4 by June 1, 2020.
Practice starts with a swim assessment so coaches can group swimmers according to ability and make sure that young ones are ready for the program. A parent or child caregiver must remain in attendance during practice. Minis practice from 3:30-4:00 pm or 4:00-4:30 pm (your choice) every Mon, Wed and Fri during the Minis season. Minis and their families are encouraged to attend all social events and team meets.
