Swim School & Junior Olympic Way
 
Learn-To-Competitive-Swim

Swim School is our entry level program into the exciting world of Competitive swimming. This program will focus on learning about competitive swimming and skills.

Swim School is offered in sessions, with Fall, Winter and Spring registrations. 

Junior Olympic Way (JOW) is the next step in our Learn-To-Competitive Swim pathway. Here, swimmers continue to build on their technical skills and will also have the option to participate in small, local Fundamentals swim meets as an introduction to competition. 

JOW is a full season program, running from September through June. Swimmers may also join the program in January or April, transitioning from our Swim School 3 program or upon Coach recommendation. 

New swimmers must attend a (free) assessment with our coaching staff before registering for Swim School or Junior Olympic Way. Swimmers are placed and moved through the program based on skill level rather than age. Fall 2021 assessment bookings are currently FULL, however you may add your swimmer to our assessment waiting list here.

Swimmers who have participated in our Summer Programs do not need to attend a fall assessment. Your coach will confirm which program level to register in at the end of your summer session. 

For those interested in the Junior Olympic Way program, please view the video below to see the skills required to enter the program to get a sense of what to expect. New swimmers interested in the JOW program must attend an assessment prior to registration. 

Winter Assessments:

In order to accommodate an overwhelming interest for Winter Session Assessments - new this session, we have created an online self assessment process . Please watch each video carefully to find the level that is appropriate for your swimmer. Your swimmer must be able to complete each skill in the video in order to register for your selected group. These are minimum requirements along with age to register for the level. If they are not able to complete a skill shown and listed in the video, please register for the previous/lower level. To keep our groups cohesive and continually progressing it is important swimmers are registered at a skill level appropriate for them.
