Swim Tune Up

Swim Tune-Up Clinic 2015

One Session:
April 12 - May 3, 2015
Sundays, 3:45pm-4:30pm

In anticipation for the upcoming summer season filled with aquatic activities such as swim lessons, surfing, kayak, other outdoor ocean sports and pool activities, junior lifeguarding, summer swim leagues, or camps that partake in aquatic activities, join us for the Youth Swim Tune-Up Clinic.

We created the Youth Swim Tune-Up Clinic as a fun way to splash back into aquatic activities, get some exercise, and become just as comfortable and secure in the water as you were by the end of last summer. Youth Swim Tune-Up seeks to increase swimmers' confidence in their aquatic abilities before the beginning of their summer aquatic programs. The summer swim preparation course will consist of in-water drills, longer distance sets, and timed swims in order to build endurance, decrease swim times, and increase each swimmers confidence in their own abilities. Certified Red Cross water safety instructors are able to offer the guidance, instruction, and tips necessary to help swimmers fully submerge themselves in the water instead of jumping into summer aquatic programs cold-turkey.

Participants must be a minimum of 8 years old and swim at or above the specified requirements of Red Cross Learn to Swim Program’s Level 4. This means that each enrollee must be able to swim a minimum of 25 yards freestyle continuously with a rhythmic stroke pattern along with 25 yards backstroke continuously, tread water for a minimum of 90 seconds, and be competent enough to swim in the deep end of the pool without an instructor accompying them in the water.
