Dates: Monthly, beginning March 1 Ages: 7+ Cost: $40/month
We provide a positive learning environment to challenge and nurture children. We will teach fundamental racing skills, advanced competitive techniques, and provide an introduction to swim training conventions and terminology. We will teach kids how to measure and monitor their own progress, we will emphasize Learning and Improvement as a basis for having fun, and our coaches will provide individual attention and support to every swimmer.
