2018 Spring Swim Squad  Programs

"Bridge the ZAP!"

"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 our year-round premier team... yes, Bridging the ZAP!
