This summer, Richmond Swims is offering a Pre-Swim Team course for Richmond youth, age 6-15. The Pre-Swim Team is a series of six, low-cost, swimming classes, introducing kids who know basic swimming techniques, to a competitive swim team.
Coach John Schonder and his assistants will introduce the competitive swim strokes, instruct swimmers on their stroke technique, and teach pool etiquette for workout swimming. Those who enjoy the class, have the option of signing up for the Richmond Sailfish swim team at the conclusion of the course. Sailfish teammates continue building their endurance and swimming skills, attending regularly scheduled practices at the Plunge.
- Session 1: July 18 – Aug. 3, Tues & Thursdays 6-6:45pm
- Session 2: August 8 – 24, Tues & Thursdays 6-6:45pm
Cost: $30 for 6 lessons
Location: Richmond Plunge, 1 E. Richmond Ave., Richmond, CA 94801.
To qualify for the class, each student must be able to tread water for one minute, swim a minimum of 20 yards, and transition from swimming on their stomach to their back and vice versa.
Class registration will be awarded on a first-come, first-serve basis. We expect that this course will sell-out. If you are awarded a spot in the class, we will notify you this week. In the event you are contacted, please RSVP to confirm your reservation to reserve your placement within course. If we cannot accommodate your child this summer, s/he will be waitlisted for future swimming classes.
