Kids’ Swim Programs

Summer Swim Team Prep

Ramp up your swimming as summer approaches! For ages 5-12.

Our J coaches, Julie (Tuesday) and Heather (Thursday), will help swimmers develop and enhance their competitive strokes. Sessions will be less about “just swimming laps” and geared toward helping create stronger swimmers through a structured workout format.

Coaches will address all strokes and swimmers should have some proficiency in every stroke. Swimmers will get reacclimated to meet distance and endurance requirements with primarily 25- and 50-yard swim intervals.

Program will include:

  • Starts
  • Stroke drills
  • Turns
  • How to finish strong
