Elementary Swimming Program

Developing Swimming Abilities in Our Young Crewmembers

Swimming is an important skill to have, particularly for those growing up on the ship. Each year, the Physical Education teacher and two swimming specialists take the elementary students on an intense program designed to develop their swimming abilities. During this program, students learn new skills and practice old ones on a swimming schedule of 30 minutes a day, five days a week. The elementary swimming program typically lasts for two weeks.
