Beach Swim Club offers interested Age Group, Senior Development and Senior swimmers a 1 week free trial. If you are interested, please come down any Monday at 4:15 pm to start your free trial!
Pathways is our introductory program for kids who are just beginning their love of the water. It is two days per week for 15 min of instruction, and a bit of water play or dryland. This additional play fosters body awareness and lets the children practice what they are being taught through self-‐exploration. Dryland activities serve the kids that are ready to move up to the age group program
Our Age Group programs are a combination of stretching, dryland and swimming drills that comprise a well-‐rounded and versatile program. We teach the 5 competitive strokes.
The Junior Elite program is intended to serve those kids who are transitioning
from age group to the seniors... everyone develops at a different rate so we have
POD1 are kids who know all the strokes but need to be brought up to the senior level gradually.. we may only increase intensity so much or the kids will struggle too much. they swim with the seniors 3 days a week.
POD2 are the kids who know all the strokes but are not ready for the increase in demand on their bodies.
POD3 are the kids just moving up from age group. They are totally comfortable in the water and know most of the strokes but might be struggling with fly or breaststroke.
