Tiger Sharks "Pre-Swim Team" Program

Our pre-competitive swim program,Tiger Sharks, is specifically designed for water lovers 3-6 years who cannot yet swim the length of the pool (25 yards) in under one minute, therefore not yet ready to join the regular summer swim team. We encourage growth and development of swimming skills, while simultaneously building children’s confidence and LOVE for the sport of swimming. 

Our program helps expose our youngest swimmers to the fun and teamwork involved a large swim team without the pressure of competition. We ensure a low swimmer to instructor ratio (typically 5:1) and our instructors also introduce technical language and drills used by Sharks Swim Team coaches. The end goal is to be able to swim the length of the pool unassisted (but heavily cheered on!) at our annual Tiger Sharks mini-meet. It always proves to be a memorable event for the swimmers and parents.

Is your child ready for Tiger Sharks?
Children must already be comfortable in the pool, able to put their face in the water, hold their breath and float or swim without assistance for a few seconds. Tiger Sharks is not a beginner or water safety program
