Learn to Race

The Pups Group teaches swimmers in grades 3-6 the racing skills to compete across all four competitive strokes in varying distances. It also builds upon basic technique taught in the Gups group.

Meet participation is encouraged, but not required.

Pups will also learn about such swimming fundamentals as using the pace clock and circle swimming.  The main emphasis of the Pups group, however, is on proper stroke technique and good sportsmanship.

For more information on the Pups, please contact Coach Mike. Or see our Join the Club page.
