Shark Fins Swim Clinic

The Shark Fins program is an inclusive group for confident beginner swimmers to advanced competitors.  This practice team takes the time to improve each swimmer's existing stroke and endurance through instruction and drills. Practices are layered so that there's plenty of opportunity for swimmers to improve their strokes and new techniques.

There's no long term commitment!  Sign-ups are offered in monthly blocks, giving families the flexibility they need to accommodate the changing schedules of academics, extra-curricular and additional sports practices.

Designed to "feel" like a swim team, this program trains in the standard language and style of a competitive group.  BUT, there are no specialized uniforms and no long distance travels to massive meets.  Train hard with a coach who knows how to make a workout fun! 

  • Dates and Prices: are listed on www.playtc.com   
  • Ages: Five through high school
  • Prerequisites: MUST be comfortable and confident swimming 25 yards without assistance on both front & back.
  • This is NOT a learn to swim program.  Children who stop and grab the lane line or wall may be able to swim... but not quite ready for this program. Private Lessons offer newer swimmers endurance and confidence in preparation for this level of coaching.
