These stroke classes are for swimmers of all ages able to swim the length of the pool in freestyle and backstroke. Students are hand-selected for each class to assure maximum progress for each swimmer. Classes are limited to 6 swimmers with the instructor on the deck teaching specific skills for each of the four competitive strokes as well as starts, turns, and finishes. In the younger classes we concentrate on fundamental techniques for efficient swimming, conforming to USA Swimming rules. As the swimmers advance, more emphasis is placed on advanced techniques for speed. In our adult classes we teach the four competitive strokes with heavy emphasis on freestyle.
During the fall, winter, and spring sessions we offer intermediate and advanced half-hour classes Monday and Wednesday between 7:30 and 9:00 pm, Friday between 6:00 and 8:00 pm, and Saturday and Sunday between 12:30 and 3:30 pm.
