EAGLES/EDGE Pre-Competitive Swim is designed for young athletes who enjoy swimming and are interested in turning their passion into a sport! This is a co-ed program designed for intermediate level swimmers grades 5- 8.
Swimmers must be able to pass St. John’s Prep’s deep-end test—swim a length of the pool (25 yards) without support or stopping, and tread water for two mins. The EAGLES/EDGE Pre-Competitive Swim Club runs in collaboration with North Shore Swim Club (NSSC), bridging the gap between learning to swim and participating in competitive teams. The Pre-Competitive Swim Club is an instructional program that develops the fundamental competitive skills necessary to participate in a USA Swim team. This co-ed program is for emerging swim athletes students in grades 5 through 8.
SJP boys who remain on campus will have access to changing rooms (to change from school clothes to swim wear), but all other athletes will have to come wearing swimwear. All athletes will not have access to changing facilities prior to departure.
NSCC coaches will focus on:
- Four competitive strokes;
- Basic endurance, starts and turns;
- Competitive swimming rules and etiquette
- Basic pool safety.
