Comp Swim (Competitive Swim)
In Comp Swim participants will learn strokes and skills they will need and want 8for comfort, technique and performance in competitive swimming. Taught in a recreational environment, the course includes stroke technique in all four competitive strokes, flip turns, lane etiquette for swim team practice meets, breath control, how to train for comfort and performance, and other competitive swimming skills. This program is designed for children ages 5-14 who are interested in the competitive swimming environment, looking for a healthy and fun exercise, and who want to learn how to become a stronger swimmer.
This is a three week course and practices are held twice a week. Minimum skills include the ability to safely swim 25-yards (one length of the pool), have a basic understanding of any of the four competitive swimming strokes (freestyle, backstroke, breaststroke, butterfly), and be independent in the water. (Coaches are not in the water.)
Comp Swim is a great way to build skills, technique and an aerobic base to prepare for the Junior Mills Swim Team, the "Twisters." The Twisters is a summer program, and will practice June 20-August 11, 2016.
*Parking on the Mills College campus will be limited and monitored for parking passes. An official parking pass for the current session is necessary at all times on the Mills College campus.
Partial scholarships available based on need and availability.
