Swim Team I 6+, Stingray graduate

Class Description

Our swim team programming strives to impart a lifelong love of the water, as well as create a foundation for emotional and physical health through competitive swimming. Swim Team I works to develop the total swimmer through focused practice of proper swim technique, good training habits, and character development within the framework of a team environment. Young or inexperienced swimmers in Swim Team I benefit from a relaxed, supportive environment, small ratios, and in-water coaching.

Student Goals

Swimmers learn to execute strokes correctly and practice efficiently, rather than aimlessly swim back and forth. Instructors actively work in the water with students to refine stroke technique and create a playful environment, balancing the introduction to competitive swimming. While increasing yardage and endurance, the focus at this level continues to be on the quality of swimming. Swim distances are based on 25-yard increments.
