Swim Fit!
Skill Building & Fitness for Youth

This program is directed towards the capable swimmer who is looking for improved fitness and stroke technique. Swimmers will be instructed in the 4 competitive strokes, including Freestyle, Backstroke, Breaststroke, and Butterfly. They will be coached the techniques needed to learn these strokes successfully. This program is designed as a stepping stone into the competitive program, OR for overall fitness and improved swimming. 


Swimmers entering Stroke Improvement must:

  • be between the ages of 9 - 12
  • be able to swim front crawl & back crawl proficiently
  • be able to swim a minimum of 100 metres continuously


New swimmers must attend a free Assessment prior to registering, where our Coaching team will be able to determine which of our program levels is the best fit for your swimmer. Fall Assessments are currently FULL, however you can add your swimmer to our Assessment Waiting list here

If your swimmer is between 9-12 years of age and is able to meet the above listed skill criteria, please contact the Cascade Office to discuss if the Swim Fit! program is right for your swimmer.
