Swim Team Prep

Swim Team Prep Swim Lessons in Knoxville, TN

Being a strong swimmer is an important safety skill. It can literally save your life! Besides, learning to be a strong swimmer can reduce the risk of drowning according the National Drowning Prevention Alliance. Swim teams are a great way to grow as a swimmer and to make great memories doing it!

What skills does a student need to join a swim team?

First off, most swim teams require students to be at least 4 years old, if not 5 years old. Many swim teams require a student to at least be able to swim 25 yards. Other teams require that they have a basic understanding of the 4 swimming strokes. Either way, we will give your student the skills they need to feel confident their first day of practice!

How many swim lessons should I book for my student to be ready for a swim team?

If you are looking to join a swim team, then your student is most likely already a Level 4 or 5. If they are a Level 4, then we recommend at least 5 lessons to get them to Level 5. Once a student is Level 5, we recommend 5 lessons to give them a strong introduction to the 4 swimming strokes. After that, it depends on how advanced you want you student’s stokes to be!
