The Mini Olympians program is designated to introduce swimming to youngsters ages 8 years and under. There will be a coach in the water to facilitate lessons. New participants are children who love the water, eager to learn, and would like to be introduced to the sport of swimming. Emphasis will be on water comfort and learning to swim across 25 metres with confidence. Focus will be placed on acquiring skills like kicking, proper body position, and breathing to swim the two competitive strokes — freestyle and backstroke. The program will also teach children sport skills such as listening to instructions, sportsmanship, and perseverance through hard work.
