Development Squad

The Developmental squad is the entry level squad to the UVAC team.  This group works with swimmers who are able to swim 25 yards of Freestyle and Backstroke.  Swimmers should also have some knowledge of the other 2 competitive strokes, Breaststroke and Butterfly. The primary focus will be placed on teaching all strokes through the use of drills and motor skills, improving and strengthening kicking technique and learning body and head position and balance in the water. As the season progresses swimmers will be introduced to Breaststroke and Butterfly.
