Junior Vikings

The Viking Aquatics Junior Vikings is an introductory level program for new and continuing swimmers ages 5-8.  The emphasis of this program is on teaching the four competitive swimming strokes:  freestyle, backstroke, breaststroke and butterfly. In addition, basic racing starts and finishes are taught. JV swimmers will participate in practice fun meets at Viking with another local team.

To Join Junior Vikings: Swimmers should be water safe and comfortable swimming half of a pool length.  Also, they need to have a pair of goggles and a swim cap (if hair covers their eyes or is shoulder length).

The class size is limited to a maximum of 6 swimmers per instructor.  Our instructors for this program are primarily in the water with the swimmers for optimal instruction. 

Junior Viking practices are held on Monday, Wednesday and Thursday.  They are 45 minutes in duration, currently 3 classes:

5:00-5:45 PM - (Advanced JV's)
5:45-6:30
6:30-7:15

JV's is a limited space enrollment program; a waiting list will be established when a section(s) fill(s) up.

Fees for the Learn To Swim Program are $60 per month.  See the TRYOUT page for more details.

NOTE: For non-swimmers 9 and above or under 5 children, it is recommended to enroll the child in a recreation program first or private lessons. Please speak with Cheryl Kasa for more information on private lessons.
