SPORT2  (7-12 yrs)

Our SPORT2 program is designed for athletes who have the basics of Freestyle (FR) and Backstroke (BK), who want to continue improving these strokes, and want to learn Butterfly (BK) and Breaststroke (BR).

The SPORT2 level is appropriate for swimmers who have trained in the SPORT1 program and have been recommended by their coach as ready to progress to this level of training, or swimmers who have completed introductory swim programs with other clubs or teams.

Unsure what training level is right for your swimmer? Feel free to contact aimee@toest.ca to set up a swim assessment to ensure your swimmer is placed in the program appropriate for their skill level.

To train at the SPORT2 level, athletes need:

  • a training suit (jammers for boys, and one piece suits for girls),

  • fins specific to competitive swimming (see image), and well fitted goggles are critical.

For dryland, athletes are to have their swim suit on, shorts and t-shirt over top, and non-marking running shoes.

The SPORT2 level Instructor is Coach Serena

Serena is an accomplished triathlete (competed at the 2018 Ontario Summer Games, plus numerous podiums at triathlons and multisport events), an accomplished mountain biker (2nd @ OCup MTB Provincials 2018, Cadet Sport div), and has her Lifesaving Society Bronze Medallion and First Aide Certificates. Having trained as an athlete since the age of 6, Serena knows what it takes to improve and to achieve athletically.

In addition to coaching with jTOEST, Serena coaches dive starts for both the Junior Masters and Masters athletes who swim with TOEST. Click here to link to our Team webpage, to learn more about Serena’s training, racing and coaching experiences.

For Serena, athletic achievement does not come at the cost of academics; she is also an Honour Roll student at Assumption Catholic Secondary School at the AP course level. Proof that proper healthy physical training does not compromise studying, instead it offers teenagers the toolkit of soft skills (i.e. perseverance, determination, stick-to-it-ness) required to achieve in sport, in school, and beyond.

Refund Policy:  jTOEST DOES NOT provide refunds. With programs focused on quality, on learning, on athlete’s making significant progress, hi athlete turnover rate would compromise coaching and the experience of all athletes. We ask that prior to registering that all commitments, calendars, etc… are reviewed to avoid joining when the risk is that the athlete will miss many sessions and/or the athlete will have to drop out. Once an athlete registers, they have a reserved spot in a lane for the entire duration of the program.
