Junior Sharks

The Junior Sharks is a session-based group for athletes that are new to the sport and/or are working toward learning how to legally swim all 4 competitive strokes. Our suggested age is 6-10 years old, but will work with families on an individual basis as needed. In the Junior Sharks group, we will provide more intensive, curriculum-based teaching of the skills needed to be successful in competitive swimming. Our goal is to progress athletes into competitive swimming and ensure a great experience for all the athletes. After an athlete has completed at least one session they will be evaluated for progression into the White (8 and Under) or Black (10 and Under) group by the coaching staff.
