Swimmers will be evaluated on Monday morning and moved into appropriate levels. We greatly appreciate a precise assessment of your child’s swimming ability to avoid unnecessary disruption of their morning schedule.  Our camp staff will do their best to accommodate your needs but the directors will have the final say on lane assignments in order to balance group size and ability levels.

From the descriptions below, please evaluate your child’s ability level AS ACCURATELY AS POSSIBLE to assist in this process.

BEGINNER: This is not a swim lesson program. Campers must be able to swim 25 yards of freestyle & backstroke independently, but no team experience is necessary.

INTERMEDIATE: Campers must be able to swim 50 yards of freestyle & backstroke and have a basic knowledge of breaststroke & butterfly. While team experience is not necessary, it is expected of younger campers.

JUNIOR COMPETITIVE: Campers must be able to legally swim 50 yards of all 4 competitive strokes (freestyle, backstroke, breaststroke & butterfly). Team experience is required (typically, this is for year-round swimmers.)

ADVANCED: Campers must be able to legally swim 100 yards of all four competitive strokes, but lack endurance & meet experience and move at a more relaxed pace during workouts.

COMPETITIVE: Campers must be able to legally swim 100 yards of all 4 competitive strokes (freestyle, backstroke, breaststroke & butterfly). Team experience is required (typically, this is for year-round swimmers.)

While the Stroke Development Camp is open to entrants ages 7-16, for your safety and benefit, the camper MUST be able to swim at least 25 yards in backstroke and freestyle (with his/her face in the water).   Swimmers are divided by those 10 and under (or entering 2nd – 5th grade) and those 11 and over (or entering 6th – 11th grade.)
