This is our entry level program for the Wahoos. Swimmers in this group have the opportunity to practice four times per week for one hour with an additional fifteen minutes devoted to basic stretching for increased flexibility and range of motion. Practice attendance is not required for this group but it is recommended that swimmers attend at least two out of the four practices each week. Super Bronze swimmers will learn the proper stroke technique of all four competitive strokes, streamlines, racing starts, flip turns and the rules for competition. Swimmers will compete in YMCA dual swim meets, USA Swimming invitationals, in addition to their expected attendance in the CT YMCA State Championship Meet. Swimmers new to the program must be evaluated by a member of the coaching staff prior to enrollment.
Demonstrate the ability to perform three of the four competitive strokes with reasonable proficiency.
