White Group: Pre-Competition Swim Team
Ages: 5 – 8 years old
Group Dynamic: This pre-competition group develops the fundamentals of the four basic competitive strokes and a solid foundation of swimming technique. Children transition at this level from having an instructor in the water with them to taking instruction from a coach on deck.
With a focus on kicking and drill progressions, the swimmers acquire the skills needed for efficient swimming. Once sufficient body coordination and control are achieved, swimmers are ready to take the steps toward competitive swimming in all four strokes. This group introduces all four competitive swim strokes, starts and turns, as well as recovery swimming. Swimmers focus on streamlining, developing body awareness and coordination within the water, having fun safely, and fostering interest in the sport of swimming.
Entrance into group: Must demonstrate the ability to swim the length of the pool unassisted without stopping with face in the water and air recovery. Enrolling a child in our Swim School can get them ready for this stage.
Training Frequency: 30 min 3x per week
Equipment: RPC swim cap, pair of goggles, swim fins, kickboard, and a water bottle.
