The Splash Surfers is a summer swim team for children of all ages up to 18 years old. All children are welcome to join our team regardless of experience. Our different age groups will be able to learn about the sport, train hard to become strong, competitive swimmers, and have fun while doing so. Our season will be 9 consecutive weeks from the End of May until the beginning of August. We will be competing against other swim clubs in our area and also will have a head to head swim extravaganza with the inaugural SPLASH Club from Marple PA.
Group 1- Ages 11 and Over.
All swimmers focus on technique through mechanics based training. They will build endurance through kicking, technique work and training sets. As the season progresses, time spent on stroke mechanics will decrease and training sets’ length and intensity will increase. Swimmers will develop team leadership skills. All work and no play? No way! There will be games.
Group 2: 9:00-10:00 am Ages 10 and under.
The swimmers will be learning to swim all 4 strokes, IMs, starts and turns. The practice will concentrate on swimming with great technique. Swimmers will continue to build endurance through kicking and games. This group will continue to develop the understanding of swimming terminology.
Group 3: 6-7:30 pm M-Th (excluding meet days) Alternative practice for swimmers who are unavailable to attend the morning practice due to parents or individual work schedules or camp attendance.

membership does not happen this year, there will be scrimmage meets with other teams in the area - 1 per week mostly likely on Monday evenings but TBD. Splash is also in the process of organizing and hosting invitational meets. Examples of the possible meets are a mini championships, Relay Carnival, distance, odd age, etc.
