Jr. BlueFins: Held Jan. through March and Aug. through Dec.| Ages 4 to 9 years old
  • This program is for children who can swim but, need more technical training in the four main strokes. The focus is about 75% technique and 25% endurance. This program provides the skills needed to become a more advanced swimmer
  • If you have a child interested in swimming and/or being on the swim team the following year, this is a great way to work on technique, stamina, and endurance. If they aren't interested in swim team, it is still a great way to develop swimming skills and keep them moving in the water
  • This program is not a 'learn how to swim' class. Your child will need to know how to swim freestyle and backstroke prior to joining.
