Buccaneer Stroke School

This program has been designed with our younger swimmers in mind that are not ready to be members of the Sherwood Raiders Swim Team. This program is not the same as swimming lessons.

To be a BUCCANEER, a swimmer must know the basic fundamentals of swimming and be able to swim independently without a coach in the water. The BUCCANEER program will be run by our Sherwood Raiders swim coaches and assisted by volunteer swim team members. During the season it is possible for a BUCCANEER swimmer to “graduate” to the regular swim team practice session. The general criteria used to determine when a child is ready to move up are the ability to ‘legally’ swim both freestyle and backstroke – 25 yards each.

The cost will be $75 per child and the clinics will be offered every Wednesday and Saturday from 10:30-11:15am and Thursday afternoons from 4:30-5:00 pm. (May 31 – July 1, 2017)
