For the child not quite ready or old enough for swim team, the Pre-Swim Team program teaches the young swimmer the strokes and skills they require to join the SCC Swim Team. Coaches will focus on teaching swimmers more advanced swimming skills, as well as the additional core strokes of backstroke, breaststroke, and butterfly. Each week will have a designated stroke to focus on, while we will also review skills learned in prior weeks. The program is broken into two (2) five-week sessions. Enrollment is suggested for both sessions in order to learn all core strokes required to join the SCC swim team the following summer. The ratio is about 2 -3 highly experienced coaches, as well as an assistant coach in the water for support, to every 15 kids. In order to be eligible, the student must be able to complete all Level 4 swim lessons skills. This is Coach Chuck’s favorite program as we always see the most improvement from students in this program.
