Swim Skills Required for Registration
Skill Level by Program
- Frogs are competitive swimmers who are legal in all four competitive strokes – Butterfly, Backstroke, Breaststroke, and Freestyle.
- Pollywogs are competitive swimmers that are legal in two strokes (free and back) and will continue to refine these strokes while learning the skills for Breaststroke and Butterfly.
- Tadpoles are beginner swimmers who are water safe and can swim the length of a 25-yard pool. In addition, Tadpoles should be able to kick using a kickboard, roll to their back and kick when kicking without a kickboard. These swimmers will learn the skills for the Freestyle and Backstroke, along with other important skills for competitive swimming. Tadpoles are part of the competitive team and will participate in meets once their coaches clear them for competition.
Note: The FAST Frog Coaching team will decide what level a swimmer will be assigned.
The levels listed above are for the FAST Frog competitive swim team. The FAST Frogs will also run a Summer Lesson program for swimmers that do not yet meet these requirements. Evaluations are not required to simply register for the Lesson program, but the Lessons program is not part of the competitive team and does not participate in the meets. If you are unsure about your swimmer, sign up for an evaluation and the coaches will place them in Tadpoles vs. Lessons accordingly.
