Is My Child Ready?

Generally, athletes that join our team know Freestyle and Backstroke and can swim 25 yards across the pool when they join the team.  Breathing to the side during Freestyle is a requirement.  Knowing or having a little knowledge of the Breaststroke and Butterfly strokes certainly helps but is not a requirement – especially for athletes ages 10 and younger.

Athletes in Elementary and Middle School usually have practice offered 3 days a week on MWF to start with our program.  Athletes in High School have practices offered 5 days a week to start with our program.  Athletes are encouraged to attend all practice sessions but it is not required.  Swim Meets are usually every 4-6 weeks and are generally local for these athletes.  Some traveling opportunities may be offered to athletes who are practicing 5 days a week.

We want to make sure that everyone’s first T2 Aquatics experience is a great one – so we want to make sure that our athletes are strong enough swimmers for the group that they are placed in.  Many T2 athletes come from our Naples Swim School, one of the local Summer Paradise Coast Swim Conference Teams, or from a High School team.  Those are all great programs to use as stepping stones to T2 Aquatics!  Even if you have not been a part of one of those programs before you are still welcome at our evaluation. 

If it is not appropriate at this time for an athlete of this age to join T2 Aquatics we recommend the Naples Swim School as a way to continue to prepare for joining T2 Aquatics.  The NSS offers many different classes for all ages and abilities and has helped many athletes progress in the sport of competitive swimming!  www.naplesswimschool.org

At T2 Aquatics we pride ourselves in helping promote a love for the sport of swimming while helping athletes gain responsibility skills and self confidence for all of Southwest Florida.  GO T2!
