2019 Mini Marlins Dates & Information: (Feeder Program)
The West Side Y offers a Mini Marlin swim team during the summer for kids who are not quite ready for the full swim team experience. These kids will practice with the summer swim team, learn the 4 strokes, flip turns, dives off the starting block and participate in a mini swim meet at the end of the season. This is a great opportunity for kids who want to swim on the summer swim team but are not quite ready for that level of swim (yet!).
Mini Marlins are a part of the team and are invited to do all activities with the team; they just don’t compete in the regular team meets. Your child will need to be able to swim 25 yards of any stoke.
Program Member $110
Shirt are included!
Evaluation/Registration Day: May 5th from 2-4pm on the pool deck.
On May 5th from 2-4pm we will be holding an evaluation to determine what group your child should register for. Please come with your child ready to swim for the coaches. You can sign-up at the front desk any time after May 5th. If you need assistance on which group to register for after the 5th of May please email Amy Johnson .
Mini Marlins Practice Schedule: May 28th – July 18th
