Stroke Academy is a great program for young swimmers who want to continue swimming after the completion of swim lessons or their summer or winter recreation league seasons. Stroke Academy provides a positive and fun learning environment for beginner athletes and is an ideal stepping stone to move onto the TIDE Swimming competitive team. Academy swimmers will develop their skills in the four competitive strokes while building confidence as young swimmers.
Academy swimmers must be able to swim 50 yards of freestyle and backstroke and have experience swimming breaststroke and butterfly. Technique-based instruction focuses on developing skills and strength in freestyle and backstroke as well as skills in breaststroke and butterfly. Athletes will also be laying the foundation for competitive racing skills such as streamlines, turns, and starts.
At the completion of each session, the staff will make recommendations for each athlete to either continue in Stroke Academy or move onto the competitive team.

"I just wanted to thank you for allowing my daughter to be a late (waiting list) addition to the Butterfly Stroke Academy that started last night. She came home last night just beaming because she had so much fun (even though she was exhausted)!
As you know, we’ve been doing the Stroke Academy for 2 ½ years, and we continue to love it! She is learning good technique, but more importantly, she is learning to work hard. I love seeing how proud she is after the practice- it is exactly how I want my daughters to feel--- knowing that she worked hard, did her best and had fun!
Thank you again for allowing my young daughter (and her twin siblings through the swim lesson program) to be a part of the program. We truly appreciate all of your hard work!"
