Swim Team Junior Squad: Session 3

The Competitive Swimming Program is designed to improve technique and fitness through more intense training regimes.

What will I learn in this class?

Participants refine skills and develop sportsmanship and team spirit. Besides improving speed, strength, conditioning and mental preparation for races, swimmers also learn goal-setting skills and determination in a positive, fun environment.

What are the benefits of this class?
Our swimmers place well in local and international swim meets and a number of representatives and age-group champions compete at overseas invitational meets. This team is also a member of the Japanese Amateur Swimming Association and several of our swimmers compete at this highly competitive level.
