FAIR OAKS SHARKS (NVSL)

NVSL Division 4 Champions!!!

For our younger swimmers, we offer a developmental Jr. Sharks program.   Children that are not quite ready for the regular swim team, can exercise their little fins and learn the skills necessary to become a "Shark".  We have very experienced and qualified coaches that are ready and willing to teach them all they way across the pool.

Jr. Sharks is geared towards children 4- 8 years old, who are able to meet our Skills Assessment criteria but not ready to swim the entire length of the pool or who are already able to swim freestyle for the entire length of the pool once, unassisted; but for whom repeating the length of the pool would require substantial rest. 

The program's goals  include: (i) improving the freestyle stroke, (ii) building endurance towards an ability to swim the entire length of the pool unassisted and without stopping, (iii) learning a racing dive, and (iv) competing by season's end against other Jr. Sharks in the lollipop meet. 

For more experienced Jr. Sharks the program's goals include: (i) improving crawl stroke technique; (ii) learning backstroke; (iii) building endurance towards an ability to swim the length of the pool multiple times with only nominal rest between lengths, (iv) learning a racing dive, and (v) competing by season's end in at least one B Meet.
