The Little Saints program is intended to serve as a bridge between swim lessons and swim team. This is not a program for swimmers learning to conquer fears of the water or put their face under. This program is intended to get acclimated to the language and strokes of swimming, and to build stamina before making it the entire way down the pool on swim team in the future. Coach Matt McKenney will be running the program, along with Assistant Coach Kyle Cannon.
We hope this smaller group program will serve as a bridge between swim lessons and swim team for those younger kids who are strong swimmers but may not be quite ready for the swim team this year. The goal is to build strength and stamina to be able to pass the swim test this year and join swim team confidently next year.
This program will close when full and the option to transfer from swim team may not be available all season.

-Be at least 5 years old
