Fall Swim 2019


Fall Swim is a conditioning- and technique-focused program with no swim meets. Due to pool time availability constraints, Fall swimming is only offered to tadpoles and swimmers ages 9 & under.

Older swimmers have the option of joining the Marin Pirates, a partner team that holds practices at College of Marin, Kentfield, during the Fall season only. Pirates programs are also run by Coach Marie and are suitable for swimmers ages 6-18. Sign up for this program on the Marin Pirates website.

Qualifications

The fall swim season is open to children ages 9 and under who can make it across the pool, are comfortable with side breathing, and are ready for the swim team experience.

All NEW 8 & Unders must register for an assessment before we can complete their registration onto the team. There is a $10.00 fee for the assessment. In the event that your child is assessed as "ready" for the team, we will move your child into the 9 & Under group and apply the assessment fee toward the registration fee. If they're not ready, we invite you to consider our fall Tadpoles program or private lessons as an alternative.

If your child can't make any of the scheduled assessments, please register for the Assessment Group anyway, and then contact Coach Marie (mariemcswim@yahoo.com.

When/Where

Fall swim is held at College of Marin, Kentfield, Monday - Friday. We offer two programs for our 9 & Under team-ready swimmers.  

  • Group 1 and Group 1A are generally team-ready swimmers in their first year of swimming and still mastering freestyle and backstroke.
  • Group 2 are generally swimmers in their second or third year of team swimming and are ready for a little more practice time and distance.

We also offer three Fall sessions for our Tadpole level swimmers -- these are swimmers who are not yet ready for the full team experience.  See Tadpoles for details.
