Fledglings “Learn-to-Swim” Program
UPDATE 5/23/20: The Board has made the difficult decision to cancel the Fledglings program for the 2020 season. We look forward to welcoming our youngest swimmers back to the team in 2021. They are the future of the Ravens!
Fledglings is an exceptional program for our youngest swimmers. The focus is on helping them learn to enjoy the water in a fun atmosphere while building proficiency in beginning swim strokes. That all sounds great to parents, but the kids’ favorite part is definitely that their coaches are the “big kids” from the Ravens Swim Team! The Fledglings program is overseen by Ravens Head Coach Elizabeth Moore.
Fledglings must be 4 years old by September 1 and be a current member of the pool. There is no age limit, though most kids move up to swim team around the age of 7 or 8. Fledglings participate in their own Lollipop Meet at the end of their season, but could also be invited to swim in a Monday developmental meet with the swim team. At anytime during the season, a child deemed advanced in their swim strokes may be invited to move up to swim team.
The Fledglings season finale is the Lollipop Meet – A fun meet held just for our Fledglings. It is non-competitive in nature and a good way to cap off a season of fun. Parents should plan to come and enjoy the meet. Your Fledglings will be so excited to show you what they’ve learned!
Parent or Guardian must be on premises during all Fledglings practices.
