Beyond the Levels Stroke Enhancement

Swim-in Zone believes that children should involve themselves in many activities in order to see where their talents lie before emphasizing one. We believe that, while swimming well is an extremely important skill for children to master, swim team should not occupy too much of a child’s free time. For this reason we ask “team members” to come no more than twice per week during the school year. We emphasize TECHNIQUE FIRST, DISTANCE SECOND.  A Swim-in Zone coach will get into the water to help a child with the stroke rather than have them do lap after lap the wrong way. Once a child decides that swimming is “their sport”, they then are encouraged to pick a USA Swimming team, Y team, community team or summer team that best suits their needs.

Practice Days and Times:Flexible scheduling plan.

If you miss a practice, just come to an extra one the next week or to a 30 min. Level 4 or 5 make-up group class.
