What Will You Be Learning?

Core Values

Gold Medal Swim School is built on a unique foundation of Five Core Values: Safety, Air Regulation, Relaxation, Body Position, and Propulsion. This foundation is introduced in Baby Swim and extends through to our Adult programming. No matter what level of swimmer you currently are, Gold Medal Swim School’s Core Values will elevate your swimming technique, endurance, and speed. To learn more about our Core Values, click here.

Our Program

Our Swim Team coaches implement Gold Medal’s three Teaching Techniques: Catch Kids Doing It Right, Layering of Skills, and Regress to Progress. These techniques foster a positive learning environment that ensures every swimmer progresses in each Core Value while having fun.

Our Swim Teams foster an environment where swimmers develop proper technique, good training habits, and character development. While stroke technique will remain the focus, there is a greater emphasis on endurance and training for health, fitness, and competitive benefits. This is a big change from the hands-on approach in Learn to Swim lessons. As swimmers begin to "own" their stroke technique and racing skills, parents and coaches should continue to encourage swimmers to practice what they have learned during every lap. Swim meets are often a reflection of how much technique the swimmer has applied during practice. Coaches continuously provide technical feedback to swimmers during practices and are happy to discuss this feedback with parents as requested.

Higher expectations and intensity are added as the distance increases for swimmers. Indoor swim team workouts begin with about 700 yards of swimming and build to 1,000 yards as the students progress. Outdoor programs run from 1,500 to 3,000-yard workouts. Swimmers interested in moving quickly through the program and swimming on the Club team should also attend Olympic Development and schedule quarterly goal-setting meetings with their coach.

Newsletters are sent out once a month and contain information about upcoming swim meets and dive clinics. Emails are also regularly sent out with the information for swim meets and dive clinics, so make sure to look for those!
