Swim Strong teaches the proper techniques to prepare the student to be a strong, safe and competent swimmer. We want them to enjoy the sport for a lifetime. Some may want to become competitive swimmers – that’s great! We’d love to help them reach those goals…but students will progress at their own individual pace. We encourage them to learn all of the competitive strokes (freestyle, backstroke, breaststroke and butterfly) so they can successfully try out for more competitive programs. We work with those who are in the very beginning level as well as those who are already competing but need stroke enhancement work.
Should we not have access to one of our pools due circumstances beyond our control (like a maintenance shut down , swim or other event or severe weather…or the student is ill) students at the Stroke Enhancement and Competitive levels are offered the opportunity to swim at one of our other venues within two weeks of the event. We can not offer that courtesy to our Learn to Swim students as we do not have the same number of coaching staff available at the more developmental levels..
While attendance is not mandatory, you obviously get out what you put into the program. We also consider attendance when it comes to who will participate in our special events.
If you have any questions, please feel free to email Shawn.Slevin@theSwimStrongFoundation.org. We wish you many years of happy swimming with us!
