BEGINNERS

INTRO-TO-SWIM & GUTTER GUPPIES

The Intro-to-Swim and Gutter Guppy programs are pre-Swim Team programs for kids six and under. Our Rancho Wahoo coaches train and mentor all of our junior coaches and Wild Wahoos throughout the season.

If you're thinking of becoming a member please reach out to our Membership Director for guidance.



GUTTER GUPPY - SUMMER SEASON
The Gutter Guppies program focuses on children that are water safe and can swim 25 yards with some assistance (they may need support or to stop and rest over the course of one lap). Lessons are 1:1 with a Rancho Wahoos Junior Coach—and can be scheduled in the morning or afternoon.


The focus is to learn how to...

• Side breath during freestyle and be able to perform the position train tracks (position 11) free drill

• Arm switch during backstroke and finish on back without rolling over

• Butterfly kick with arms in position 11

• Breast stroke kick


Schedule & Fee

• See Rancho Wahoos on Team Unify
For questions, please contact Head Coach Scott Mendelssohn or our Swim Director, Romi Smith. 




INTRO-TO-SWIM - SUMMER SEASON
The Intro-to-Swim program focuses on children that may have little to no water experience. Lessons are 1:1 with a Wild Wahoo—and can be scheduled in the morning or afternoon during the summer season.

The focus is to learn how to...

• Float on front and back
•  Blow bubbles
• Feel comfortable in the water
• Kick on front face in the water with train tracks/position 11
• Bounce off the bottom 10 times while blowing bubbles
  under water; inhales when face exits
• Swim free from coach to the steps/wall unassisted
• Swim down a length of wall and be able to grab hold
  if needed; becomes water "safe"


Schedule & Fee

• See Rancho Wahoos on Team Unify

For questions, please contact Head Coach Scott Mendelssohn or our Swim Director, Romi Smith.
