New to Swim

As the season begins, we would first like to welcome new members!

Most of the needed information is found in the calendar, listed on the home page.

For years, the Seahawks have been using one swim tool, the kickboard a standard for all swim programs. Now, the older swim group (Ages 11 & Older) will be using new tools during training: Hand Paddles, Swim Pull Buoys, and Swim Fins. It is recommended that ages 11 & Older acquire Hand Paddles and Swim Fins for this year’s swim season. (Kickboards and Swim Pull Boys will be available to all at the pool) At practices; Hand paddles, Buoys and Fins will be used simultaneously during a drill or in combination with a kickboard.

  • The Hand Paddles will help increase efficiency, create a more consistent feel for the water, help build better swim mechanics, and improve overall strength and technique.
  • The Swim Pull Buoy will help elevate the body, keeping the hips up and build upper body strength.
  • The Swim Fins will improve the leg strength; the extra propulsions from the kick will increase the yardage during practices.
  • A Mesh Bag ‘wet bag’ is used to carry all the wet items above. It frees up room of the regular swim bag keeping towel/clothes dry.

All items are available at D&Q
