During the inaugural 2021 season, we had a great time with this group.   We were able to get into a few local races and had tons of fun at practice.   Usually we practiced two times per week with a land practice and then one in the pool.

Starting multisport training early has so many benefits for children.  Becoming a proficient swimmer in the water at a young age provides a huge advantage.    Developing skills like bike handling and pacing is a great way to add fun to any practice.
