Summer Swim Program

Practices

Our summer program is extra special. Practices happen in the morning. During the coolest part of the day, kids, staff and parents have fresh energy, and we see exponential improvements in their swimming. In addition to our seasoned head coaches, we bring in our talented summer staff comprised of returning collegiates, high-schoolers and twenty-somethings who have previously been in our program for multiple years and have strong aquatic backgrounds in swimming, water polo and/or life-guarding.

Consistency over time = Improvements. Swimming a minimum of 3x/week for more advanced swimmers and minimum of 2x/week for novice swimmers provides the optimum swim-improvement and character-development experience. Practice-by-practice, week-by-week, our spirited and purposeful practice format becomes familiar. This feeling of familiarity leads to increased confidence in the water and establishes good swimming habits. This is when learning really accelerates and flows.  Your child could swim between 20 and 30 practices this summer! Just think of the potential for character development and swim development - in the pool, on the deck, on the beach and in the bay! 

Morning practices: Often our swim practices are just the first part of an active summer day for our swimmers. Since we finish rather early each day, families can treat the swim practice as “just the way we start our day” and then go on to the next fun summer activity. Swimmers who attend almost all practices will improve the most. They will know the aspects of being a Rocket Fish, connect with the staff, establish a flow with their swimming, and be the most “in-tune,” competent and confident they can be in the water and on land.

Special Events

In addition to our regular practices, we like to spice up our Rocket Fish Summer Program with special events like ocean/bay workouts​ -- a chance for the kids to get a feeling for swimming, paddling, training, racing and playing on the the beach and in the bay. 


Quality program with quality relationships: We are interested in having good relationships with our swim families, and we do our best to operate fairly, friendly, and with a degree of flexibility. Our team is more than a simple swim program. We build an aquatics community and an aquatic lifestyle with quality, family-oriented people. Some families stay with us for five to 10, even 20 years and become lifetime friends. Since it is a two-way relationship we ask the same of our swim families towards our billing department, our team communications person, and our coaching staff. Thank you in advance for keeping the stress levels down, respect levels up and thoughtfully working through questions or issues. If you have a question, please email [email protected]
