Summer 2022 Swim Squad

Summer Registration is now open.

The bridge between swim lessons and swim team...

Swim Squad is a perfect way for young and new swimmers to get their feet wet in the sport of competitive swimming. We break the year into 4 seasons and focus on specific pieces of swimmer development in each of the different seasons. Swimmers commit to only one season at a time and may choose to swim as many seasons throughout the year as they wish. Our seasons range from 7-15 weeks and are for swimmers ages 7-14* who want to be part of a fun summer activity where they will learn, be challenged, have fun, and be an active part of a team. We look at it as the bridge between our learn-to-swim lessons and swimming year-round on a competitive team.

Classes will be held at MIS only. 

There are no swim meets or potlucks until further notice.

Squad programming has been changed to better serve the swimmers. There are now 4 distinct Squad classes - mini Squad is for swimmers 5-6 years old; Squad 1 is for swimmers 7-8 years old; Squad 2 is for swimmers 9-11; Squad 3 is for swimmers 12 and older.

Classes must have a minimum of 4 swimmers to stay open. Classes with fewer than 4 registered swimmers may close.

Advanced Squad has been changed to "Swim Conditioning" but will remain the same format. Practices are 90 minutes in length. Swimmers must be 9-11 years old to join Swim Conditioning 1 and must be able to swim the 100 freestyle in a minute fifty (1:50 or faster); 12 and older to join Swim Conditioning 2 and must be able to swim the 100 freestyle in a minute thirty (1:30) or faster.

There are make up options; please text Jeff (424) 901-3702 for options.

 

Registration for Summer will open on May 2. The schedule is listed below. Please read the description of ages required to be in mini Squad, Squad 1, Squad 2, Squad 3 and Swim Conditioning.
