"My Kid Passed Gold, Now What?"

After your student has completed the gold level they will be competent in all four competitive swimming strokes: Freestyle, Backstroke, Breaststroke, and Butterfly. They are now considered a "Big Fish" in a little pond and are ready to pursue swimming as a competitive sport if they choose. You and your child can talk about what's next, and here are a few options for you to consider:

Happy Fish Bonus Level - Big Fish

When a swimmer passes the gold level at Happy Fish they may understand all the techniques to swim well, but may lack the repetition that is needed to build those strokes into their muscle memory. We have a bonus level at Happy Fish called the "Big Fish" level. Swimmers in this level continue practicing their strokes through repetition while also learning a few new tricks that can help them with their starts, turns, and general movement around the water. Swimmers are not encouraged to spend a long time in this level and would benefit more from enrolling in our Swim Team Preparation classes that happen on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays.

Seasonal Swim Clinic

Happy Fish students who have passed the Gold level and have spent some time in the Big Fish level (or have previously been on a swim team and find swim lessons too easy) can join our Seasonal Swim Clinics.

Our swim clinics focus on teaching swimmers common swimming drills in order to better develop their overall stroke technique in a fun, non-stressful environment. These classes are ONLY for swimmers who can swim multiple laps without getting fatigued, AND have a good understanding of Freestyle, Backstroke, Breaststroke, and Butterfly.

Our Swim Clinic follows an 11-week schedule where swimmers are assessed on the first class to make sure the program will not be too challenging for them, followed by two weeks on each stroke, and ending with I.M. practice and an introduction to waterpolo.

It's a great program to help kids transition from a swim lesson environment to a swim team environment, as well as for kids who used to be on a swim team and need a little extra practice during the off season.
