For information on the following programs directed by Coach Sandy Neilson-Bell see: www.CoachToGo.com

Spring / Pre-Competitive (“Mini-Team”) — swim lessons for Orca Wannabes, 5yo (as of 1/1) and older, who are already water-comfortable and can hold focus in class environment for close to 25min.

Spring / “Tune-Up”— a pre-summer, 3 practice per week, program for “Junior” or “Teen & Tween” swimmers who have had summer or other “novice” type club experience and are looking to improve swimming skills.

Summer / “Mini-Team” — a pre-competitive swim lesson session for children 4 & older who may not yet know how to swim with proper technique but are already water-safe. Great for those looking to swim next year with the Wild Orcas!

Post-Orca into Fall / Coached Swim for Kids — for swimmers who would like to train on a casual level but may not “yet” be interested in year-round competition. While enjoying the camaraderie of a swim-training group, swimmers will work on age appropriate skills.
