Develop your skills, stamina and stroke technique in an eighteen-day series of Water Safety and coach instructed ninety-minute sessions.
Swimming takes place in deep water; for swimmers already involved in competitive swimming. Offered in July.
Current Harbor Seal coaches and former Harbor Seals witht Water Safety Instructor certification explain essentials of the four competitive strokes and conduct drills designed to improve stroke technique. Daily (weekday) sessions enhance technique in front crawl (freestyle), back crawl (backstroke), breaststroke and butterfly. Racing starts and turn technique for all four competitive strokes, as well as Individual Medley, are also refined. In addition, basic life-saving skills are introduced and practiced.
Pre-requisite: Swim two lengths of the pool and have a basic knowledge of the four competitive strokes. Participants must be comfortable enough and confident enough in the water that group instruction will be both beneficial to the student and the other students in the class. Limited enrollment.
Please make checks out to BRAINS.
The FHHS pool is a competition pool, not a bathing pool - water temperature is cool. BRAINS does not offer refunds for variations in temperature or condition of the water or facility. Maintenance of the FHHS pool facility is performed by a private company under contract with the NYC Department of Education and is not, in any way, under the control of the Bay Ridge Aquatics Institute, Inc.
No refunds. Applicant is responsible for the total fee since acceptance to the program is offered to a limited number of candidates. All teaching costs, security and permit fees must be paid for whether classes are attended or not, therefore BRAINS cannot offer make-up classes, credits or refunds for any classes you may miss. In the event that a class is cancelled we will, at our option, either schedule a make-up or offer a refund or credit for the number of classes cancelled. Exceptions: If major illness or serious complications make it impossible for the registrant to attend classes, we will make every effort to fill the remaining classes with another participant. Should such circumstances arise and we can fill the slot, while we are not obligated to do so, we will consider your request for a refund or credit. Please note that a processing fee of $25 will be applied to any refunds granted. If you are seeking such consideration, you must submit this request in writing along with doctor's notes and/or any other proof needed.
Transfers: Any transfer requests not initiated by BRAINS must be accompanied by payment of a $15 transfer processing fee.
