Regina Y's Men's Marlins Mini Marlins Program

Children as young as 5 years of age and those who are learning to swim will progress quickly in our Mini-Marlins program. Mini Marlins have lots of fun while developing skills and endurance. As they progress through the three levels of Mini Marlins, swimmers will learn the four basic strokes, as well as starts and turns. We highly suggest to all of our mini families that our program is a good compliment to lessons, not a replacement.

Mini Marlins accepts registrations throughout the year, and runs from September to the end of May. With drawl from the program can be done at anytime with 30 days notice to the club administrator and head coach
