Group Description

The Pups Group prepares swimmers ages 8-12 for aerobic swimming by creating a strong foundation of stroke technique and racing skills. it builds upon the introductory skills learned in the Gups group!

Meet participation is encouraged, but not required.

Pups will also learn about such swimming fundamentals as using the pace clock and circle swimming.  The main emphasis of the Pups group, however, is on proper stroke technique and good sportsmanship.
