This is our introductory group to swim team. Swimmers work on improving skills and technique, including, the four competitive swimming strokes, dives and legal turns. They are introduced to basic swim sets, how to share a lane with others and reading the pace clock. The focus is on the fundamental aspects of competitive swimming, which includes introduction to swim meets. This group requires two practices per week. The group is split into a Monday/Wednesday/Friday or Tuesday/Thursday/Friday group. Swimmers wills select which group they commit to. Swimmers in this group are able to swim 25 yards of the four strokes (Butterfly, Backstroke, Breaststroke, and Freestyle), dive head first from the side of the pool, perform a forwards somersault, and swim 50 yards of freestyle with side breathing.
