2018-2019 Winter Season Details
Calvin Swim Club is coached by current Calvin College swim team members. Our goal is to provide a structured training environment that provides a combination of fitness, instruction, and fun. Calvin Swim Club is a member of the WMSL (West Michigan Swim League) and USA Swimming. We participate in 3-4 dual meets and a championship meet at the end of the season. The dates of these competitions are still TBD and will be communicated with parents at the beginning of the season.
The 8&Under group will practice from 6:30-7:30pm. The hour will be split up into approximately 20 minutes of dryland, skills and instruction (appropriate movement skills that will translate to the water), and 40 minutes of swimming for fitness and endurance. The 9&Up groups will practice from 6:30-8pm. The 90 minutes will be split up into 20 minutes of dryland, skills, and instruction (appropriate movement skills that will translate to the water), and 70 minutes of fitness and endurance. On Saturday’s when we have practice, the 9&Up group will practice from 10am-11:30am and the 8&Under will practice from 10am-11am. Please note that the practice schedule is always subject to change due to the college and high school schedules. Also, we will cancel practice if school is closed for winter weather in which case we will post the cancellation notice on the club website.
