4       Pre-Compete Swim and Dive Program

The pre-compete swim and dive program bridge the gap between  lessons and the swim and dive team experience. It is designed to introduce children to the sport of competitive swimming and diving in a non-competitive environment. In the pre-compete swim program, participants receive instruction in the competitive strokes (freestyle and backstroke as a primary focus) and instruction on racing starts and turns.  Participants in the pre-compete dive program are introduced to the fundamentals of diving such as basic jumps and the front dive. This is a great opportunity to receive small group instruction from experienced coaches. Sign Up for the Pre-Compete. Program on Super Sunday or through the pool office after Opening Day.  Questions can be directed to  Sheila Pinter at pinterdskdjn6@gmail.com

COST: $ 70 PER session (8 Thirty Minute lessons)

Junior Guard Program

The Junior Guard Program for 13- and 14-year-olds is designed to teach the skills needed to be a full-time guard. The program is divided into 12 lessons on Sundays over four weeks, with one week used for make-up sessions and preparation for a final examination, which will take place Sunday, July19. 

To successfully complete the program, applicants will need to attend the 12 lessons and pass the final exam. Upon completion, students will receive an SRA Water Safety Certificate and be considered for a full-time position as a guard either later this summer or for the 2016 season.
