Introduction to Competitive Swimming
WETS SQUADS Club is our pre-competitive swim club program for children who have completed Swim Kids level 4 (Ages 5 + up) and want to further develop their swim technique in a fun team-training atmosphere where the elements of competition are introduced. This program is ideal for pre-swim club or extra practice for those already in swim club as we focus on four competitive strokes (front crawl, back craw, breaststroke and butterfly), starts, turns and finishes. WETS Squad Club swimmers have the option to participate in a Fun Mini Swim Meet in mid-February.
In Squads we encourage an active lifestyle for children and youth through healthy competition and building a strong community.
Register for SQUADS
A Note from Coach Megan: “The Squads program is a great introduction to competitive swimming. A lot of work is emphasized on body position, steady kicking, rhythm, and breathing control that is crucial in becoming an successful competitive swimmer. This is a great program to get your young swimmer prepared for the exciting world of competitive swimming!”
Introduction to Synchronized Swimming
