ISLE SWIM TRAINING GROUPS

Training groups are broken into three levels: Sandpipers, Riptide and Big Kahunas.

Isle swim uses a progressive age group program that is designed to develop a swimmer physically, mentally and emotionally in a systematic order. The emphasis in the early stages of participation is on developing technical skills and the love for the sport. Then the swimmers will be introduced more demanding physical and psychological challenges and the ownership of their sport. Swimmers will be placed in their group by age and ability.  Advancing to the next training group will be determined by the coaches. The Walk Up and Tryout will determine whether the athlete is ready for the challenge of a competitive team.

The team practices are as follows:  Fall Hours

Intro Team    5-6p       Monday & Wednesday  or Tuesday & Thursday

Sandpipers    5-6p       Monday - Thursday

Riptide         6-7p       Monday - Thursday

Big Kahunas  7-830p   Monday - Friday

Practice Times and Days are subject to change as team size fluctuates.

Intro to Swim Team

Our 2 day a week Intro Program is geared toward new swimmers who are not ready to commit to full-time training. Instead, Intro Swimmers will concentrate on learning all four strokes in a fun atmosphere. Through the practice of drills/skills/repeating of basic swimming fundamentals, our Intro Swimmers are taught an appreciation of the sport without having to commit to full-time training! 

Note: this is not a swim lessons program. Participants must already be water-safe and able to swim 25 yards.

Practice 2 days a week

SANDPIPERS

Bginning Level swimmers will focus on stroke technique and kicking with an emphasis on breathing, balance and having fun. Swimmers are also introduced to relays, turns, the clock, drills and basic water safety. Development of good training habits are a big part of this group. With improvement they begin to swim longer distances, applying skills with more fluidity and confidence.

Practice 3-4 days a week
