MINI-TEAM for "not-yet Orcas"
Pre-Competitive Lessons

This 4-week session of “pre-competitive swim lessons” is for children 5 & older who may not yet know how to swim with proper technique but are already water-safe and have the ability to focus in a 30 min. class setting. Mini-Team is a stepping-stone toward the Orca summer swim-team.

The title “Mini-Team” is used in order to help include swimmers in the “Orca Spirit” though they are not yet on the Wild Orca Team. Orca coaches teach swimmers with an eye toward making them swim-team-ready. Children will practice proper technique relative to body position, breathing skills, stroke mechanics, competitive rules, and more. Freestyle & backstroke will be covered primarily. Other strokes will be introduced.

Lessons are 30 min per day on Mon, Wed, Thurs. Classes will be scheduled at Coach’s discretion between the hours of 3:30-5 (possibly 6) depending on age and skill level.

WHEN: M,W,Th — 4/1 through 4/25
Fee: $140 members / $160 non-members
