The Developmental group is our entry level group of the UVAC team. The primary focus is on cultivating a love for swimming, teaching all strokes through the use of drills and developing motor skills, improving and strengthening kicking technique, learning body/head position, and balance in the water. As the season progresses, swimmers will be introduced to Breaststroke and Butterfly as well as the introduction to the individual medley. Swimmers must be able to swim 25 yards of Freestyle and Backstroke in under 60 seconds and have some knowledge/experience regarding the other two competitive strokes, Breaststroke and Butterfly.
