If you would like to reserve a spot for our BIG FALL SKILLS TEST DAY - for our 2024 FALL PROGRAM, you can reserve a spot by emailing [email protected]

Our SUMMER PROGRAM has something for all ability levels between age 4-18 years old. Our SUMMER PROGRAM is a hybrid of swimming lessons - recreational swim team and competitive swim team and in most groups your child will be exposed to land fitness, life skills and swimming skills. 

Recreational (low-key) swim meets are offered across the summer program. We finish the 8-week program with a Summer Championship that most kids have the ability to compete in.

You must complete a skills test to register for the program. These skills tests fill quickly and the program is typically at capacity by mid-May. 

Summer 2024 Skills Tests Dates:

Saturday, April 20, 2024. 9:00-11:00AM - email [email protected] to reserve a spot.

Space is limited. Sign-ups will be taken until full.

 

What's In A Skills Test?

Our coaches look for quite a few things that determine entry inbto our most novice level groups up to our highest level groups. It's a sliding scale that also includes the child's age and physical maturity. Some of those skills include:

  • Confidence entering the water
  • Ability to put face into the water and blow bubbles
  • Front float
  • Picking an object up off the bottom (relaltive to the child's age).
  • Back float
  • Ability to kick with a kick board
  • Freestyle (Crawl stroke) arm action
  • Freestyle swimming with side breathing
  • Backstroke
  • Breaststroke
  • Butterfly
  • Flip turns.

At the most novice level, Confidence entering the water, blowing bubbles and some ability to kick might be adequate to enter the program.
