Mermaid Club – Specialty Aquatics Program – Ages 8-12 Years

The Mermaid Club combined fun with fitness and swimming while building friendships and improving swim strokes, endurance and basic water safety skills.  Dolphin kick is introduced and refined in the context of underwater and above water swimming routines.  A dry land component focuses on building a strong core and students are challenged to be good stewards of the ocean and all its citizens.  Fins will be provided and costumes (colorful swim leggings, etc.) are encouraged as the Club explores and develops its mermaid culture.
