Pre-Fins Group - Spring


This is one of the most exciting additions to Dolphin Club in years! Due to the overwhelming success and excitement of our swim team, we have added the Pre-Fins program. In order to be in this group, your young athlete must be able to complete a 25 free or 25 back unassisted and must be 4 or older. While swimmers in this group will not compete in USA Swimming meets, they very much will be members of the "Fin Family" and will have a "fun meet" at the end of each of the three 8-week sessions.

Swimmers in this group will focus greatly on learning the fundamentals of all four strokes over the course of 8 weeks. Development will be different for each athlete, and coaches will be focusing on improving each individual swimmer for what comes next in their progression rather than having a specific set of skills that they have to do regardless of their current ability. The coach-to-swimmer ratio will be low in order to provide the best quality coaching possible, and the fun-to-swimmer ratio will be blown out of the water!

Additional registration form required. For more information, contact Jonathan Kaplan at jkaplan@weinsteinjcc.org.
