Stroke Development Program

Stroke Development is designed for children ages 5 - 18 years of age that swim without a floatation device and are looking to fine tune the 4 main swim strokes.

Stroke Development is taught by one of the Y’s Swim Team Coaches and focuses on freestyle, breaststroke, backstroke and the butterfly. Throughout the 7-week session, children will swim the full length of the pool while focusing on a different stroke each week.

In addition to the 4 main strokes, children will work on flip turns, starts and finishes. This class is a great transition into the Spring Swim Team Program.

Members/Nonmembers: $70/$100
Tuesday 6:17 - 7:00 PM
Thursday 5:30 - 6:15 PM
