We are taking a very LIMITED number of swimmers for a condensed Junior Wahoo program this 2021 season. Priority registration will be offered to those 6 and under swimmers who did not pass the beginning of the season swim assessment, and to current Wahoo families.
The Junior Wahoo Program is a selective developmental program for emerging swimmers age 3-6 WHO ARE POOL MEMBERS. Your young swimmer will work with Wahoo coaches to refine his or her stroke and improve endurance, with the goal of swimming a full lap and competing for the Wahoo.
The Junior Wahoo Program will run June 2nd - 18th. Practice sessions will be held M/W/F from 8:00 - 8:30 a.m.. Due to the limited enrollment and short program duration, please ensure that your child meets the minimum skills outlined below BEFORE registering your child.
Junior Wahoo Minimum Skills: Juniors should be able to put their faces in the water, float on their backs, and be able to propel themselves across the fifteen foot instruction area. If your swimmer has not quite mastered these skills, we strongly recommend private lessons instead of the Junior Wahoo Program. Your child should be eager to swim and not have extreme trepidation about joining the Junior Wahoo group.
As Jr. Wahoo swimmers improve, they can advance through our “minor leagues.” We’re looking forward to seeing even more youngsters build their confidence by swimming themselves onto the big team. Juniors who become able to swim the length of the pool unassisted will have the option of joining the Wahoo 6 and Unders in Wahoo meets.
