Sea Stars

For ages 5 – 18

The JCC Sea Stars is part of the CARA recreational swim league that focuses on swimming fundamentals and the introduction into competitive swimming. The Sea Stars is a great transition from our Swim Safe Academy that will further challenge your child while still nurturing their love of swimming. While a part of the JCC Sea Stars swim team your child will also have the opportunity to participate in fun, inclusive, team building swim meets as well as fun social events throughout the season. Some of the skills your child will learn while on our swim team are:

  • All 4 competitive strokes (freestyle, backstroke, breaststroke, and butterfly)
  • Proper starts, turns, pull-outs, finishes, and relay exchanges
  • Lane etiquette
  • Swimming terms, such as: sets, distances, drills, intervals, etc.
  • Swim meet procedures and rules
  • Good sportsmanship and a strong work ethic
