2018 Summer 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!



2018 Summer Swim Squad June 18 through August 2

Summer 2018 Swim Squad will open for registration on Thursday, May 10.  

Classes will be held at Peninsula HS and South End and MIS.

Swimmers must be 7 years old to start in regular Squad classes. .

All Squads will not practice from July 4. Classes must have a minimum of 4 swimmers to stay open. Any numbers less than that can potentially cause a class to close.

Advanced Squad will remain the same format, with practices being 90 minutes. Swimmers must be 9 years old and must be able to swim the 100 freestyle in a minute fifty (1:50) or faster.

All Squads will be offered two mini meets (not to be confused with mini Squad). The meet dates are Wednesday July 11 and August 1. There will also be 6 organized make up dates for those who might miss classes for any reason. All of the make up classes will be held at Miraleste.
