TEEN & TWEEN is for teens and some swimmers 10-12 who have basic mastery of the four competitive strokes and the ability to maintain composure in a 40min group swim-setting. Emphasis will be on proper technique and building stamina. Swimmers will work on starts, turns, understanding pace, using a pace clock . . . and, more. Perfect for h.s. swimmers who want to continue their training, home-schooled students, returning Orcas, and other swimmer types.
"MINI-TEAM" (Swim Lessons) — 30-minute sessions held during the 3:30-5:00 time period. Coach instructors focus on helping your beginner swimmer reach a "swim-team-ready" proficiency level. Mini-Team lessons are for "Orca Wannabes." Registrants for Spring "Mini-Team" must:
- be 5 yrs old as of 1/1/17
- attend swim evaluation on 3/23 or 4/2
- demonstrate water safe, floating and bubble blowing skills
- display confidence (not fear) of water
- have no separation issues & ability to hold focus in 25-30 min class period
Throughout the April/May "Mini-Team" session swimmers will be evaluated for 2017 "Orca readiness." Should a swimmer not be ready for Spring "Mini" or, during Spring "Mini" not be ready for the Orca season, he will be referred to summer "Mini-Team."
Please contact Coach Sandy with any questions or to confirm your child's level and appropriate placement.
