FLEX Program

 Coach Kayla Griffin ([email protected])


This Flex Group (Flex) is designed for swimmers between the ages 5 and 10. To join Flex, an athlete must be proficient in Freestyle and Backstroke (be able to complete full lengths of the pool, unassisted), with knowledge of Breaststroke and Butterfly. The emphasis in Flex is to build on proper stroke technique for all four strokes: freestyle, backstroke, breaststroke, and butterfly, as well as proper starts and turns. The goal of the Flex group is for athletes to learn the fundamentals of competitive swimming while having fun doing so! Flex group dryland will include basic land motions that will help strengthen connectivity in the water.

Flex swimmers may attend 2 practices per week and are limited to 2 meets per year. Athletes wanting to participate in more meets will pay a one-time USA Swimming membership upcharge of $50, but will not be required to change groups or group fees. Flex is limited to ages 10-and-under.
