Orcas cancelled swim lessons, is there a make-up lesson that is offered?  We do our best to offer a make-up lesson during the session in which the lesson was cancelled, however this is not a guarantee. In some cases we may offer an in-house credit if multiple lessons have been cancelled, however again this is not a guarantee.

Prep Squad

What is Prep Squad Swim Team??

A transitional group that helps swimmers bridge from SwimAmerica swim lessons to the RSC Swim Club. In this group swimmers are encouraged to attend at least two practices a week. Practice is offered Sunday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. Swimmers will learn more advanced stroke work and important skills and drills to be successful swim team swimmers.

Focal points of Prep Squad practice:

Introduces lane etiquette (circle swimming, lining up, how to pass)
Establishes positive habits (stremline breakouts with fish kicks, legal finshes)
Further develops Breastroke and Butterfly
Conditions freestyle and backstroke for workout level distances
Teaches drills, sculling, flip turns (front and back), open turns
Leg strengthening through fin kicking
Swimmers will enter this group with knowledge of all four strokes and will leave ready to be a member of either the RSC USA Swim Team or the House League.

Already graduated from our SwimAmerica Swim Lessons program (in the last year)
