Is my child a Mini or a Neptune?
For some parents, you might be trying to figure out if your child is a Mini or Neptune team member. Mini swimmers are usually our youngest swimmers in need of lessons to get stronger with their swimming ability. During the first few weeks prior to time trials, children that would be considered borderline will be allowed to practice with the team in accordance to our by-laws. Register as a Neptune. At time trials, if your child can't complete a single lap, then your child will be recommended to move to the Mini's until they can swim across the pool without stopping. The afternoon practices are not designed to be swimming lessons. Coaches may not be able to devote time to give individual attention as mini lessons are able too.
Please, if you are confident your child can't swim the length of the pool without stopping (foot on bottom or grabs lane ropes), then register for Mini's only.
