FlexSwim

 

 

Greenfield Community Aquatic Team now offers a FlexSwim Program for those not quite ready for the competitive swim program.  

 

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.  

  • Cougar Cubs 
    • Monday - Thursday 6:15 - 6:45 pm
  • Pumas
    • Monday - Thursday 6:15 - 7:00 pm
  • Panthers
    • Monday - Thursday 7:00 - 8:00 pm

GCAT does have minimum requirements for the Flex Swim program and for each group.   

A swimmer must be able to complete a 25-yard legal Freestyle and 25-yard legal Backstroke.

 

Not sure what a legal Freestyle and legal Backstroke look like.   Here are a few of the minimum requirements for each of the 2 strokes:

Freestyle -

  • Face must remain in the water during strokes until the breath.  
  • Breathing is done to the side without stopping your arm stroke or lifting the head.
  • Arms must recover over the water.  

Backstroke -  

  • Both arms must be straight and must recover over the water.  
  • Swimmer must be able to remain on their back for the entire length of the pool.   
  • Swimmer must be able to keep face above the surface of the water.

If your swimmer is not quite ready, GCAT offers a swim lesson program.  Click here for more details on our swim lesson program.  https://www.teamunify.com/TabGeneric.jsp?_tabid_=157871&team=ingcat
