Channel Kittens practice twice per week on Mon and Wed from 4:50-5:30 pm We introduce all four competitive strokes, proper streamlining, diving and flip turns. The focus is on fun and technique, not speed and competing. We believe a swimmer should be able to perform a stroke properly before he/she can start competing.
Three 10 week sessions per season is just enough to give the younger swimmer an introduction to the sport in a non-threatening environment. Long time Channel Cats Coaches Meredith Thompson-Edwards along with her mother Elaine Thompson are the main coaches of the Channel Kitten program along with older swimmer volunteers.
Fall session Oct-Dec
Winter session Jan-March
Spring session April-June
