Youth Swim Team

Winter Youth Swim Team

The Blue Mt. Recreation Commission will sponsor an elementary youth swim team for winter 2019-20.  The winter season includes practice 3 days a week and swim meets on Saturday’s.  This program is open to any student 6 years of age through 8th grade.  This is not the Learn to Swim program.  Practices are an hour long so students need an attention span to last that long.  To register for swim team, students should possess a swim lesson background and have completed Level 3 of the Learn to Swim Program.  Practices involve swimming laps to work on stroke mechanics and build endurance.  They must be able to swim an uninterrupted lap of freestyle with arm recovery out of the water (No doggie paddling) with side breathing.  All new participants will be evaluated over a 2 week period to determine if they are ready for the swim team experience. 

The program will run from December through March.  You may register online for this program but if you are unsure of the ability level of your child, it is recommended to stop in the Rec office or call to inquire.
