SCHROEDER SWIM NOVICE & REC PROGRAMS

Our Novice Programs are for those that have all the beginner skills learned from Swim Lessons, but are not looking for the competitive team program at this time. Kids in these programs will progress current skills as well as learn more skills like building their endurance and underwater control.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION:
All new athletes will need to go through an evaluation with Caleb Hernday or Phil Davies before registering for a specific program. To schedule an evaluation, please click the link at the bottom of this page or click HERE.
