Learn to Swim Program



About the group

Our Learn to Swim program is the perfect transition from swim lessons to competitive swimming for young swimmers.  Swimmers will learn the essential elements of the four competitive strokes in a fun supportive environment.  Our program is designed to improve technique and build endurance in the water.  Our program is targeted towards swimmers aged 5 to 10. 

Blue Shark
Swimmers must be able to swim 20 meters of the pool, unassisted on either their front or back.  The group goals are focused on developing great streamline, balance, body position, kick and breathing patterns.  These are the most basic and key components of fast swimming.  Front crawl and back crawl are the basic strokes in this group.  Teamwork and fair play are learned through games and group interaction.

Red Shark
Swimmers will continue to improve skills learned in group 1.  The focus is on improvement in all four competitive strokes, turns, dives and endurance.  Swimmers are preparing for entry into our competitive program.
