SHARK SCHOOL -- Up to Age 12

For School Age children who are able to swim freestyle and backstroke but need to improve their technique before joining the competitive community.  

This is not a learn to swim program.  All swimmers must be able to complete two lengths of the pool in freestyle and one length in backstroke across the deep end.

This program has a fun environment with age appropriate drills to encourage skill development.  Some drills may look like play time, but all have a purpose in developing competencies.  Participants will learn all four competition strokes plus legal starts, pullouts, and turns.  Individual Medley concepts will be introduced.

  • 2 practices per week
  • 45 minutes each
  • 6 practices per session guaranteed
  • ​School year only (switch to Stroke Clinics in the summer months)
  • Not a part of USA Swimming
  • Goal is to move to competitive team when ready

​Note:  Participants must have basic swim knowledge and must be comfortable in deep water.   Shark School will be utilizing the diving well of the pool.  The Taylor natatorium is an indoor pool and is kept at FINA-mandated competition temperature (77 to 82 degrees Fahrenheit).
