Silver Team

About the Group:



The next level in our program is the Silver level. Here, children will begin to learn to the opportunities swimming provides (lifeguard, swim instructor, teacher, coach). In addition, children will learn how to set goals and engage in a dialogue with their coach about what they will need to do to reach their goals. Technique is still heavily emphasized and swimmers begin to explore stroke efficiency. Swimmers will also begin to have stronger level- appropriate workouts steeped in technique and kicking.
