Intro to Competitive Swimming

Information below has been updated for the 2021-22 Season -- we have limited pool time and can handle only limited numbers of swimmers

The Introduction to Competitive Program is for those swimmers being introduced to competitive swimming.  Swimmers should be able to swim two lengths of a 25 yard/meter pool without stopping and be comfortable in deep water.  All four competitive strokes (Freestyle, Backstroke, Breaststroke and Butterfly) will be taught as swimmers are ready, as well as technical elements of racing (starts and turns).  Each practise includes a dry land training portion to develop fitness, core strength, rhythm, and flexibility. 

Each session is approximately 10 weeks long.

This program is offered in two locations:
