Little Krakens will swim ONE race in all HOME meets at 5:45 before the meet starts! Little krakens focus on introduction to swimming and stroke development. Little Krakens need to be comfortable in deeper water and be able to swim the length of the pool. Little Krakens is not a replacement to swim lessons. Kids should be able to pass level 4 or 5 swim lessons to be in Little Krakens.

Seniors Program: I encourage all High School students to join the team (Ages 15-18) IT IS FREE!!! They are the heart and soul of the team. For HS students who join the program we will help develop them into instructors and role models. It is a great opportunity to get involved and learn amazing leadership skills. We also have special awards at the end of the season for our senior division. Graduating HS Seniors will be awarded at the end of the season banquet. Practice is optional for HS students, but we encourage them to attend Home meets, prelims and finals! Contact Ben for more information.
Every FRIDAY will be a fun day. We will begin with a short practice, then play pool games, do slip n slides, and many other exclusive pool games only available for kids on swim team. Doughnuts and Ribbons will then be handed out to the kids.
If the weather is questionable for a meet or practice, I will email all of the parents the night before or the day of (around 7 am) - we will send text alerts as well. We will try to find indoor alternatives periodically. Please make sure you receive our Emails! You will also be opted in to our text message alert system. Call us if you are unsure!
