Swim competitively for East Lake Woodlands
The East Lake Woodlands swim team is a member of the Pinellas Aquatic League (PAL). During each week of the season (May – August), swimmers have the opportunity to compete in dual meets with other teams in the PAL. Our team also competes in several larger sanctioned meets. Meet participation is encouraged but not required as a team member. We also have many fun events including a July Watermelon-themed party.
We offer group swimming lessons as well as private coaching. The private sessions are offered during the week, and weekend sessions are available periodically upon request. Swimmers are categorized into five levels.
Level I (ages 3-5)
Basic water adjustment: Includes blowing bubbles, face in water, holding breath, floating on front and back with support, kicking with support and beginning to paddle.
Level II (ages 3-6)
Paddling: Includes floating, gliding, kicking on front and back without support, adding arms to front and back crawl (up to 30 feet), quick breaths, jumping into water and recovering to side, and retrieving objects from the bottom of the pool.
Basic swimming skills: Includes swimming front crawl with rhythmic breathing, backstroke up to 50 feet, introducing breaststroke, diving headfirst into deep water and treading water.
Refining swimming skills: Improving freestyle, backstroke, breaststroke, introducing/improving butterfly and racing starts/turns.
Classes are tailored to the individual.
