Each summer Waterloo hosts a series of workshops and prep classes to jump start your summer league swimming. Check back next year to see our full schedule of classes.

Waterloo Swimming is offering its Annual Summer League Prep classes again this year. We are offering both our Foundation and Advanced classes to help your swimmer get a head start on summer league swimming!

Coached by USA Swimming certified Waterloo Coaches, these classes will help prepare your swimmer for a successful summer league season. Stroke technique and practice endurance are the focus of the water time. Swimmers will work on racing starts and relay exchanges.

The Advanced program will focus more on endurance balancing technique and racing strategies. This program is for swimmers legal in ALL FOUR strokes (Butterfly, Backstroke, Breaststroke and Freestyle). The Foundations program will focus on building swim practice endurance with an emphasis on stroke technique. In order to be in the Foundations program, a swimmer must also be enrolled in one of our Stroke School classes – Novice 1, Novice 2, or Intermediate – as this is not a substitution for swim lessons.
