Our Gamma program is offered one to three days a week. The swimmer has to swim 25m (1 length of pool) in order to be in this group. He/she needs to be comfortable in deep water and not require any adult in the water. This group is working on freestyle and backstroke, along with learning breastroke and butterfly kick and learning how to dive and do turns. Swimmers in this group have the opportunity to start competing in swim meets designed for athletes who are learning what it’s like to race and be at a competition.
Some skills that are expected include:
-kick with a flutterboard independently for a minimum of 25m
-proficient front crawl for a minimum of 25m
-knowledge of backstroke and whip kick are an asset
