HEAD START

2020 Head Start at Lost Creek Country Club

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 program is not for members of the Little Cruzers.

This is not a learn-to-swim program, a substitute for swim lessons, or a program for proficient swimmers. 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 HEAD START WILL OPEN ON MARCH 9 and close when full. Please read the following information first and then use the links at the bottom of this page to register.  

Swimmers who are ages 5 & 6 as of May 1, 2020 and all NEW swimmers must come for an evaluation before registering, to ensure that they meet our minimum swim requirements. Evaluations will be held Monday through Wednesday, 3:30-4:00, during the week prior to Spring Break (March 9-11) and again on March 23 & 30 and April 6. No appointment necessary.  All members of Head Start must be members of LCCC in good standing at the time of their evaluation and registration and through the end of the program. 

 

Dates:

  • Session 1: Tuesdays through Fridays, March 24 to April 3 at Lost Creek Country Club
  • Session 2: Tuesdays through Fridays, April 7 to April 17 at Lost Creek Country Club

To get the most out of this program, kids should come every day, but this is not a requirement. Swimmers may register for one or both sessions. 

Times: The coaches will tell you which group to register for when you come for your evaluation. 

  • Minnows ("younger" beginners ages 5-7) 4:45-5:15
  • Sharks ("older" beginners to more proficient swimmers ages 7+)  4:15-4:45

Group Descriptions:

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: $120.00 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. 

Registration Links will open March 9. NEW SWIMMERS SHOULD NOT REGISTER until after they have come for an evaluation. Click a link to register using your existing Cruzers login. If you do not have a Cruzers account, you will be asked to create one.
