The Little Flippers Program: Focusing on Development and Growth

The purpose of the Little Flippers Development Program is for swimmers ages 5-12 who are just being introduced to the 4 strokes (particularly freestyle and backstroke) and who are working towards swimming one length independently. These groups will have a coach and a volunteer in the water with them to support them as they learn. The young swimmers are placed in very small swimmer/coach ratio groups based on their abilities.​ The minimum requirement for this group is the ability to swim 25m unassisted. (Completion or the equivalent of Swimmer 3 is recommended)
