Welcome to the 2019-20 season and our 2nd year of running SPORT3. Whereas SPORT 1 & 2 continue to introduce stroke fundamentals, the SPORT3 level progresses swimmers to applying all the skills into more formal training. Athletes at the SPORT3 level will begin to swim ‘sets’ and will be introduced to more complex skills, specifically the skill level of competitive swimming in each of the strokes.
To train at the SPORT3 level, athletes need:
In SPORT3, swimmers are required to train with a swim cap. Athletes are provided one (1) cap at registration. Replacement caps are $20 and are available from email@example.com For dryland, athletes are to have their swim suit on, with shorts and t-shirt over top along with non-marking running shoes.
The SPORT3 level Instructor is Coach Mark

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.
