Level 1

(10 & Younger)

Untitled design - 2023-06-13T074737.197.png

Description:  Level 1 is for kids ages 10 & Younger.

In this group, we focus on developing the techniques for legal competitive strokes, starts and turns, build water safety skills, prepare swimmers for their first swim meet and how to work with others on a team.

 

Swimmers will swim for one-hour each practice and can swim up to three (3) practices per week.

This group is perfect for kids have been through pre-team, or have prior swim team experience, and are ready to start swimming a longer workout and attend swim meets.  We attend meets approximately once per month in this group.  Meet attendance is optional.

Required Equipment:  Fins

Membership:  $150/mo.  Entire season membership required

Description:  Level 2 is for kids 11 & 12 yrs old.

In this group, we continue to build on the technique learned in Level 1.  A focus is given to teaching swimmers how to swim from the legs up, not the arms down.  We do this so the swimmer can learn high-performance techniques & skills from an early age, minimize/eliminate shoulder problems and build habits that will serve them for a lifetime of FAST swimming.

We start to build training volume in this group by swimming for 90 minutes.  We also start teaching the swimmers our training cycles (aerobic, anaerobic, speed/power) and expose them to the basics of Sports Nutrition, Sports Psychology and Leadership building.

Membership:  $250/mo.  Entire season membership required.
