Jr Lancers & Lil’ Lancers  

Jr Lancers and Lil’ Lancers are 5 week developmental swim programs for children 11 and under who have the confidence and ability to independently swim across the pool (in any manner!), but who still need to learn the proper skills and stroke technique in order to be successful on a competitive swim team. They practice 3 mornings a week (T, W, Th)  to learn and practice proper freestyle (with side breathing) and backstroke. Coaches work with swimmers to begin to prepare them for the swim team.  They will have 2 mini-meets and participate in  Lil' Lancer team building activities.  Practice times are still being finalized but will be roughly 10:45AM-11:30AM.

As soon as the coaching staff believes a Jr Lancer or Lil' Lancer swimmer has mastered the team requirements, the swimmer may move up to the competitive team and will be able to compete in swim meets for the rest of the season.  

Swimmers must be evaluated for inclusion in the Jr Lancer or Lil’ Lancer program. The evaluation consists of a 25 meter length of independent swimming (any style is acceptable) .  Please note:  Both Jr Lancers and Lil' Lancers are swim team prep programs, not learn-to-swim programs.  Please do not register your swimmer until a successful evaluation has been completed.  Swimmers should attend an evaluation before registering to ensure that they pass the evaluation before registration payment is made.  Pre-season evaluations can be scheduled here.
