Swim Stroke School

Y-Swim Stroke School

Want to swim like an Olympian? Our Y Swim Stroke School focuses on the four competitive strokes, starts, and turns. It is open to ALL levels of swimmers with the only prerequisite being the determination to swim. This 60-minute class provides a transition from YMCA swim lessons to swim conditioning or competitive swimming with the goal to further develop and refine the four competitive strokes:

  1. Freestyle
  2. Back Crawl
  3. Breaststroke
  4. Butterfly.

Y-SWIM Stroke School will focus on balance, body position, and alignment in every stroke before adding in the arms. Our main goal is to practice perfectly for short distances with many repetitions before we start working on endurance. Each swimmer’s goal at the end of each session will be to complete 10 full minutes of swimming in that stroke style.
