What is KidSWIM?

The GMCF KidSWIM Club is a great place to gear up for a non-competitive Swim Team. You will gain the skills, knowledge and confidence to apply what you have learned in a more formal setting. You will learn persistence, self-discipline, and how to be a team player all while having fun swimming. 

The GMCF KidSWIM Club is for swimmers who have mastered the following skills: can float on front and back, swim 25 yards, jump feet first into the deep end to enter the pool, are comfortable playing above and below the water, and can tread water for 1 minute. The GMCF KidSWIM Club is geared for beginners that have met the criteria described above through age 12. Swimmers will learn all four competitive strokes, turns, and dives.
