The Process of Achieving is as Significant as Realizing the Achievement Itself.
Level 1 This is the entry level of the program designed to provide a fun learning experience as a means of introduction to the sport of competitive swimming. Our objective is to combine the natural fun of being in the pool with an enjoyable learning atmosphere to develop coordination of movement relative to the four competitive strokes (butterfly, backstroke, breastroke, freestyle), and diving. Learning pool safety, basic rules of the sport, and sportsmanship round out the list of objectives for this group.

Level 2 Participants include novice swimmers age 10 and younger. Our objective at this level is to develop a higher volume of coordination based training by utilizing games and drills designed to make the learning experience fun. Goals include an introduction to competitive swimming starts, turns,and skills designed compliment the continued development of the four strokes, as well as developing a working knowledge of the rules of the sport, learning fundamental racing techniques, and how time relates to a successful performance.
