This program is designed to provide committed young athletes and their families with the best preparation possible for success in our elite Competitive Program. It serves as a transition year where athletes and families become acclimated to the Santa Clara Aquamaids’ training schedule, policies, procedures and mission. Swimmers must be between the ages of five and eleven to participate. There are three required and one optional practices per week, one of the required practices incorporates ballet. Participant families are required to work at our Bingo fundraiser and volunteer.
