2018 Early Summer Swim Team at Lost Creek Country Club
Note: This information is pending for 2018. Please check back in February for updates.
Early Summer Swim Team (formerly "Head Start") lets new and returning members of the Lost Creek Cruzers summer swim team get started early on the summer season. This program is only for members of Lost Creek Country Club, and for swimmers who are currently registered with the Lost Creek Cruzers or for swimmers who are planning to swim with the Lost Creek Cruzers.
This is not a learn-to-swim program or a substitute for swim lessons. All Early Summer Swim Team participants will need to meet the minimum swimming eligibility requirements, which is to get in the water with a team, take instruction from the coach, put their face in the water, move their arms and kick to move forward, and float on their back. It is fine if they don't have legal strokes or need to rest for a few seconds by holding the lane line. However, they must be able to demonstrate the fundamentals of putting their face in the water, moving arms, kicking, etc.
REGISTRATION FOR EARLY SUMMER SWIM TEAM WILL OPEN ON MARCH 26. Swimmers who are registered with the Cruzers will be given "priority" registration.
- Session 1: Mondays through Thursdays, April 2 to April 12 at Lost Creek Country Club
- Session 2: Mondays through Thursdays, April 16 to April 26 at Lost Creek Country Club
To get the most of out this program, kids should come every day, but this is not a requirement. Swimmers may register for one or both sessions.
Times: Minnows (beginners ages 6+) 4:00-4:30
Sharks (experienced summer league swimmers ages 8+) 4:30-5:00
Minnows: Swimmers are comfortable putting their face in the water and 'swimming' short distances without an aid or instructor (ie from wall to instructor). They will build the fundamentals of freestyle kick, arms, and rotary breathing; and backstroke body position, kick, and arms.
Sharks Swimmers can swim freestyle and backstroke, understand the basic fundamentals of breaststroke and butterfly, and can swim the length of the pool without stopping. Sharks will focus on proficiency in freestyle and backstroke, advanced stroke work and drills, and the mechanics of breaststroke and butterfly.
Cost: $100.00 per swimmer, per session (will be added to your LCCC member account)
Please note that this fee is not prorated, even if you are unable to participate for the entire session. Once registered, fees are not refundable for any reason or prorated for missed days. Once a group is fully enrolled, it will close automatically. There is no waitlist.
