**********************************************************************

The Whispering Oaks Blue Marlins Swim Team is a member of Maverick Summer Swim League and is open to residents AND non-residents of Whispering Oaks.

Our coaching staff provides a disciplined, fun program for swimmers. We offer beginner levels for all ages up to advanced. Our learn to swim program is very popular with kids ages 4-6 with coaches/age group helpers in the water with the kids. They make it fun and the kids really learn to swim.

Our program runs for approximately 7 weeks. This summer our season will begin May 15th and run through June 30th.   

May 15th is first in-water practice and the last day is Friday, June 30th. Meets are optional, but we encourage 95% participation.  Dual meets (where we swim against another team) are still TBD. 

Practices are held Monday - Friday.  

You must register by Friday, May 19, 2023 to receive a team t-shirt!  Final registration date is Friday, May 26, 2023!  

Practice times are still being worked on, but swimmers will fit in the following groups:

Little Guppies - (Learn to Swim) Swimmers are usually between the age of 4 to 6 years old.  They will be placed in one of the 2 groups by coaches.  This group time will be 30 minutes.  The swimmer cannot be afraid to put their face in the water.  

Minnows - Beginner Swimmers (must be able to swim the entire pool without assistance).  We like to keep our swimmers with their age group so this group has a breakout lane for swimmers who are more advanced in their age group.  This is a coach selected group. 

Sharks- Intermediate Swimmers (must be able to swim all four swim strokes).  This group includes a breakout lane for swimmers who are more advanced. This is a coach selected group.

Elite- Advanced Swimmers (mainly teenagers/high school age swimmers)

Practice InfoBeginning May 15thMonday through Friday evening practices until school is out. Practice will switch to mornings beginning Monday, June 5th.

The main focus of the first two weeks of practice is about developing a routine and working on their endurance and learning how to streamline thru the water. The first couple of weeks can be tough depending on weather, temperature of the pool and just getting into swimming shape, so please encourage your kids to stick with it. The coaches will be organizing the kids the first few days, so please be patient as they work thru this process. We understand if you cannot make every practice because SCHOOL comes first!
