  • Prerequisites: Aquadogs swimming is for swimmers ages 6-18 years who can swim one length of the pool unassisted in both freestyle and backstroke. Stroke technique does NOT need to be perfect!
  • Involvement: Aquadogs swimmers can choose their own practice schedule and level of commitment based on the practice time options offered each season. Some swimmers choose to practice at a competition level, while other swimmers prefer to practice at a recreational level.
  • The ability to dive and/or do flip-turns is also not required (these skills will be team-taught), however knowledge of basic breathing techniques and the ability to swim under water for a short distance is important.
  • If swimmers are unsure of their abilities, Aquadogs coaches are happy to evaluate swim skills during a visit and to offer recommendations.
  • Swimmers are also broken down into practice groups according to age and ability. Swimmers can select from several swim meets of varying levels in which to compete throughout the year, or simply swim to develop technique and take advantage of the great conditioning swimming offers!
  • Getting Started: Please contact the Aquadogs Membership Coordinator (above) to arrange a visit date.

See you at the pool!
