Shark Pups is the Garden Hills junior swim team!  Designed for swimmers ages 4-6, the Shark Pups team will provide an introduction to summer swim league in an upbeat, more intimate, and less competitive environment.  Swimmers will be introduced to competition strokes, diving (for those who are ready), and other important swim team skills such as listening and respect.  There will be four 3-week sessions available, in April, May, June, and July, with multiple time groups in each session to maintain a lower coach to swimmer ratio (no more than 10 swimmers per time group).  Swimmers may register for multipls sessions. The June and July sessions will each conclude with a Mini Meet – a fun opportunity for our Shark Pups to show off their new skills, learn about racing, and enjoy a little friendly competition. competition.

In the interest of safety, all swimmers must have a basic comfort level in the water as well as a general ability to stay afloat and move through the water with limited assistance.  This is not a program for absolute beginners or children who are afraid of the water since one-on-one moments with instructors will be limited by the group nature of the program.  Swimmers must be comfortable with putting their face in the water.  Shark Pups practices will primarily take place in the shallow end of the pool, with some deep end lane swimming as the swimmers are ready.

Swimmers in Session 1 will be allowed to join the Cool Sharks summer team at the end of their session IF they are ready and can pass a Cool Sharks evaluation and if they will be 5 years old by June 1st.  All other Shark Pups swimmers will not be allowed to move up to the Cool Sharks mid-season, however all Shark Pups will be encouraged to join the Cool Sharks fall team this year or the summer team next year if they are ready!
