They continue to learn floating and kicking on front and back; to submerge with eyes open. They begin to master rhythmic breathing and develop bilateral breathing. Students combine stroke on front and back (arms and legs coordination); they push off wall, glide, kick and exhale 4 -7 yards.

SKILL DEVELOPMENT A

Skill Development A is our entry level group for younger swimmers (9 years and younger) with a desire to swim on our competitive team. These future competitive swimmers will continue to develop and improve in all four strokes as they prepare for Novice or Junior Prep (next Team level group) through our structured “Technique Excellence” drill program. Skill Development A is one step away from the Competitive Team Level. No meets are required for this group.
Upon completion of Skill Development A, Individuals may opt to continue their journey in our “non-competitive” segment (Technique Development) instead of joining the competitive swim team.

At intermediate level swimmers will continue to improve their technique in all four competitive strokes. Focus is on improving all technique details including starts, turns and finishes. Swimmers are introduced to pace work and the ability to build their “swimming endurance”. Swimmers may opt, with instructors approval, to transfer to a competitive level group, if desired.
The equivalent competitive group may be Novice or Junior Prep depending on the swimmers age and individual development level.
