We hope you enjoyed the pool this summer, and we look forward to seeing you back in Spring 2021!

DUCKLINGS

2021: June 28 – July 15 • Mon - Fri, 11:00-11:30 am

Ducklings is a pre-swim team program open to Norwood Swim Club Members, ages 5-7. Led by our Swim Team Coaches, young swimmers learn and practice swimming skills in prepartion to one day join our swim team, the Norwood Ducks. (Ducklings is not a group swim lesson where basic swimming skills are taught.)

In order to be in Ducklings, a swimmer must successfully demonstrate basic skills with good comfort and body position: a front and back float without assistance, kicking on the front and back without assistance, crawl stroke arms on the front, rolling the body from front to back and back to front. Mastery of the four swim strokes (back, breast, butterfly, freestyle) is not a prerequisite, nor is being able to swim the full length of pool unassisted.

If you are unsure if your swimmer is ready for Ducklings and would like your swimmer evaluated for the program, please contact the Head Coach of our Norwood Duck’s Swim Team. Evaluation is not required.

After four weeks of practice, the Ducklings will participate in an exhibition swim at the start of the last Norwood Swim Team home meet on Tuesday or Thursday, July 13th or 15th, 2021. Almost all of our Ducklings at go on to join our swim team, Norwood Ducks, a year or two after being a Duckling, by 7 or 8 years old.

On the last day of Ducklings, Friday, July 16, 2021, there will be a potluck style BBQ lunch with the coaches.

Ducklings team fee: $75. Sign-up when you register your Family Membership + Teams. If have already registered for the current season and would like to add Ducklings for your swimmer(s), please contact the Registrar.
