The Mini-Fins is Fox Mill Woods’ Developmental Swim Program and provides advanced instruction for those swimmers not quite ready for the continuous lap swimming required of swim team. At this level, Mini-Fins should be able to swim a half-length of the pool. Under the guidance of our FMW coaching staff and volunteer swim team members, Mini-Fins will learn to complete a full length of the pool, the basics of all four competitive strokes and the starting dive. As the Mini-Fins improve, our coaches may encourage them to try a developmental swim meet and/or move up to the swim team during the season.
All new swimmers interested in the Mini-Fins program are encouraged to attend the May 1st Open House. You may also attend one of two Parent Q&A sessions on either June 1 or June 2 at 6PM.
If you are uncertain about if your child should participate in swim team or the Mini-Fins program, evaluation times will be held on June 1 and 2nd at 5:15PM.
The Mini-Fins program gets underway once school is out with its first session on Friday, June 25 at 10:45AM. They continue to meet M-F until the program concludes on Tuesday, July 26. (Final practice includes a special Pancake Breakfast for all!)
