Pre-Swim Team Practices on Wednesdays and Fridays from 5:30pm-6pm. This group is non-competitive and for swimmers ages 5-7 who are strong swimmers but do not yet know how to swim the four competitive strokes. Swimmers will learn Freestyle, Backstroke, Breaststroke, and Butterfly as well as other key points that, once mastered, will allow them to move onto our competitive team at the Spinner Dolphin Level. This class is taught with Coach Joyce or Coach Jacqi in the water.
Spinner Dolphins: Ages 7-11
These are our youngest beginner swimmers. A swimmer in this group should be able to swim 25 yards freestyle with side breathing. Swimmers learn freestlye and backstroke technique, and skill acquisition is the primary focus. As swimmers in this group progress they are taught all four strokes (freestyle, backstroke, breaststroke, and butterfly). Swimmers develop stroke and technique through drills, games, and demonstrations.Before leaving this group they learn competitive skills such as starts and turns and the ruled of competitive swimming.
Spinner Dolphins practice on Monday- Friday 3pm-4pm. We recommend at least three practices per week.
