2018-2019 SEASON UPDATES
Fall session: September 25th – December 18th
Winter session: January 8th- April 2nd
(no practice during February Vacation week)
~2 sessions each date –
The TORPEDOES SWIM TEAM is a small, developmental swim team where swimmers learn what it is like to be a part of a team. Swimmers will learn how to:
- read a workout
- how to circle swim on intervals using a pace clock
- how to do racing starts, turns and finishes
- and build their endurance.
Stroke instruction and development is an integral part of this swim team, however, this is not a weekly “learn to swim” lesson.
Swimmers wishing to join must know all four competitive strokes: Butterfly, Backstroke, Breaststroke, and Freestyle, and be able to swim the length of the pool (25 yards).
We have 4-5 meets throughout the season. Most meets do not have disqualifying judges; the Torpedoes are just learning what it is like to participate in a meet. The emphasis is on being a part of a swim team and having a good time!
