Are you thinking about competitive swimming? If you are looking to have your child start in a “pathway” to be part of a competitive swimming program – Are you in an advanced level of swim lessons? If the answer is “yes”, you will need to begin in our WSY Pathway Programs which include Pre Competitive Swimming (September and January), Stroke Clinics (April|May), and Ducks Summer League swimming (June| July). After a swimmer completes 2 or 3 steps in our pathway programs, they will be eligible to move to our WSY Competitive Team. Keep in mind, if your child can not make it one length of the pool without stopping, they will need to remain in swim lessons before they register for any of our WSY Pathway Programs
The WSY Mini Team is the second part of a two-part program designed to slowly move swimmers from the pre-competitive level to the competitive levels. We will introduce Pre Competitive Mini Swim Team participants to the experience of a swim meet and will continue to work on the fundamentals of competitive swimming.
This program is great for summer league swimmers, Country Club swimmers, or children advancing out of swim lessons. In addition to working on correct stroke form of all four (4) competitive strokes and using starting blocks, swimmers will have the opportunity to participate in two (2) inter-squad swim meets at the YMCA. Prerequisites for this program include the ability to swim one length of the pool (25 yards) on your stomach with rotary breathing and one length of the pool on your back. Each class session will be limited to 35 swimmers.
This program is open to youth ages 6-14.
