The fundamentals program is ideal for younger swimmers (age 7+) that are interested in trying competitive swimming. Swimmers should be capable of confidently swimming one lap of the pool using one or several of the basic swim strokes (front crawl, back stroke, breast stroke, or butterfly). The focus of this program is on the fundamentals phase of Swim Canada’s Long Term Swimmer Development (LTSD) model for all four strokes, starts and turns.
The junior competitive program is the ideal next step for swimmers from the Fundamentals program or for older swimmers (age 9+) that have good fundamentals in at least 3 strokes. This program continues to build on swimmer fundamentals and introduces swimmers to the Learn-to-Train phase of Swim Canada’s Long Term Swimmer Development (LTSD) model. Team participation and good sportsmanship are developed.
