What is Stroke Development?
  • Stroke is similar to swim team practice, but in smaller groups. Classes will be run more like a clinic and be heavy on drill work. 
  • Swimmers will focus on a specific stroke each class and add in strokes and turns when possible. 
  • Qualified swimmers (see below) may sign-up for as few, or as many, classes as they would like. 
  • If our current class offering fill, please add your student to the waitlist and we will do our best to open more classes.
Who can sign up and when?
  • Swimmers from this year's swim team who want some more stroke work.... You can sign-up now!
  • Non-swim team kids should email to get permission to enroll.
    You must be able to do multiple lengths of each stroke to participate.
