Swim Skills Required for Registration


Skill Level by Program

  • Frogs are competitive swimmers who the coaches have determined are capable of participating in one or multiple strokes / events.
  • Pollywogs are novice swimmers, who the coaches have determined that with additional training may be able to participate in one or more meets during the season. Pollywogs are usually legal in two strokes (free and back) and training on the additional strokes.  
  • Tadpoles are beginner swimmers, who the coaches have determined require  additional training before they are ready for competition in all strokes, but will likely compete in meets during the season. To be a Tadpole, a child should be water safe and ready to learn competitive swimming skills. Swimming a 25-yard length on their own is not a requirement for entry into Tadpoles, but having the ability to kick using a kickboard, roll to their back and kick, get to a laneline /wall, etc. are minimum requirements for entering the program.

Note: The FAST Frog Coaching team will decide what level a swimmer will be assigned.
