A-Patch Clinic Information 2017

JUNE 19 – JUNE 29


What is an A-Patch?  An A-Patch is given to a child who can swim one length of the pool and tread water for two minutes.  While wearing the A-Patch the child is allowed in the deep-end of the pool (5 feet area) including the diving well & slide.


Please Note – It is not a prerequisite to attend the A-Patch Clinic in order to pass the A-Patch test.  This clinic is designed to help those achieve this goal.


Objective:             To provide swimming instruction to those members who have children attempting to get their A-Patch.  The purpose of this class is to motivate and teach the children basic swimming instruction and to be able to swim one length of the pool and tread water for 2 minutes.


Reqs:                     Swimmer must be a member of the pool and able to stand in the shallow end of the pool (approx. 3 feet).


Cost:                      Free to pool members!


Classes:                There will be eight ½ hour classes, Monday through Thursday, for both weeks.  There will be a “bad weather” make-up day on Friday if a class has been canceled.  If a child tries for their A-Patch and succeeds, they have the option to finish the class or let someone else fill their spot.  (please be advised that some classes may change moderately depending on the instructor’s schedule)


Times:                   There will be 6 classes in the morning (2 at 10:00, 2 at 10:30, 2 at 11:00), 2 classes in the afternoon (3:00 and 3:30), and 4 classes in the evening (6:30, 7:00, 7:30, and 8:00).


Instructors:           Coach Sue will be one of the instructors for this clinic.  The other Instructors are life-long members of the swim team and come highly recommended by Coach Sue.  



There will be 12 classes of 5 children only.

The first 60 children who sign up will be assigned a class.  Any others will be put on a waiting list!
