FlexSwim

 

Greenfield Community Aquatic Team offers a FlexSwim Program for those not quite ready for the competitive swim program.  We look forward to having you join the Greenfield Community Aquatic Team and are excited to Unleash another Great season! 

 

Our session based schedule allows for a shorter commitment.   This program allows for the freedom to do multiple activities.  The parents will choose the number of days a week your swimmer attends class.   There are no monthly fees.   Your session cost is a per class fee x the number of days a week chosen x the number of weeks in the session.    Your level of commitment is your decision.     There will be a $50 registration fee per year.  The club year runs from September - August.

 

We offer 3 groups for the Flex Swim Program.
