New Swimmer Evaluation 

We will have an evaluation for new swimmers intending to be on swim team. This will take place on the first week of pre-season practice (or when a swimmer starts). The purpose is to ensure that they are water-safe. These swimmers will be required to get in and out of the water without assistance, get their face and head wet, and be able to swim one lap by themselves. If they are not comfortable swimming freestyle, it is ok if they dog paddle. This is for all kids new to swim team. Kids who are not able to swim a full lap will be allowed to practice with the team, however they will be unable to swim in a meet until they can make a full lap. Kids who are participating in the Guppy Program need not attend.

What is the difference between the Guppy Program and 6 & Unders on the swim team?

The Guppy Program is a pre swim team program that consists of lessons, Monday through Thursday, for beginner swimmers ages 4-7. Each week they will progress and learn new techniques, making them better and more confident first-time swimmers. On Wednesday, 7/19, the guppies will have an opportunity to participate in our Blue and Gold Regatta. During the meet, they will swim a lap of freestyle.

The 6 & Under age group is the youngest age group of the swim team. They practice daily and compete in swim meets.

Sign up for Guppy Program

Cost:  $275 per swimmer.

If you have any questions about the Guppy program, please contact the IVST Director.

Registration for the Guppy Program closes May 31, 2019.
