Pre-Competitive Programs at SCP & JDF pools
Island Swim Skills Team (ISST)
At each practice, swimmers will be divided into lanes based on age and ability. When they are ready to progress, swimmers will just move to the next lane. This open format is easier for family scheduling and allows swimmers to progress at a faster rate and to work with different coaches from time to time. Full Registration Information Package
HOW DOES IT WORK?
We have 14 scheduled ISST practices per week at Commonwealth and JDF pools. Choose the combination of practice times and location that best fits your schedule. Fees are charged on a monthly basis to your swimmer account.
WHY TWO OR THREE TIMES PER WEEK?
Swimmers become more confident in the pool and progress more quickly when they practice at least twice per week. A significant amount of time is spent reviewing skills when only practiced once a week.
Swimmers 6 – 8 , choose 2 times/week
Swimmers 9 and older, 3 times is recommended
iRaces are held 5 times during the season (usually on a Sunday morning) and are a great chance for swimmers to practice the skills they have been learning at practice - and they're lots of fun! 2023/24 schedule:
- Saturday October 21 - RESULTS
- Sunday December 3
- Sunday February 4
- Sunday May 5
- Sunday June 16
Conditioning & Technqiue (C & T)
Conditioning & Technique group is a non-competitive program, but does offer the opportunity to compete if members wish to do so. This program is designed for anyone who loves to swim - especially former competitive swimmers, athletes who are cross training and anyone who wants to improve their skills and fitness to become a lifeguard or swimming instructor.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
We have 5 scheduled C & T practices per week at Commonwealth pool. Choose the number and times to practice that best fit your schedule. Swimmers may make up missed practices by contacting the ISC office or lead C & T coach.
