Typhoon swimmers Ages 6-9- This level is designed to introduce young swimmers into the sport of swimming while allowing maximum opportunity to participate in other activities. Emphasis is on teaching the fundamentals of the four competitive strokes by means of drills and games that make swimming fun. Swimmers in this group can legally swim all four competitive strokes, but still need that “competitive” refinement. Swimmers in this group are also learning to “master” all the rules of competition for USA Swimming and proper workout etiquette. This is our entry-level group. Swimmer must be able to complete the following:

  • Emphasis will be on FUN, stroke technique, distance per stroke, starts, turns, and streamlining.

  • Training will be mild; learn to feel and move through the water; preparing for 100 stroke,

    200 IM and 200 Free.

  • Objective is to Improve/learn stroke technique; introduce training principals.

  • Acquire basic understanding of the pace clock

  • Swimmers are encouraged to attend 2 to 3 workouts per week.

    Workouts are offered three days a week. It is recommended to come to at least two for regular improvement. There is no attendance requirement for this group, but athletes will improve more quickly, and make more friends (which will make them want to come more)!
