Flight School Program


Flight School is an entry-level, developmental group for Rice Aquatics. The goal of this group is to have a positive entry point into year-round swimming. Flight School is offered as a twelve week session with a break for the winter/holiday season. Practices are offered twice a week for 45 minutes in four different schedules. Swimmers in this group are typically legal in one or two strokes and have some knowledge of all 4 strokes. Each practice is geared toward a specific technique or concept that will help with the overall progression of all four strokes. There are three 10 & under schedules and one 11 & over schedule. Swimmers in these groups are not USA swimming registered athletes and have no meet requirements.
