KICK2START Training (Sept-May)

Designed for athletes who have gained the basics of Freestyle (FR) and Backstroke (BK) technique, want to continue learning and improving these strokes, and want to develop the aerobic capacity to swim continuously for longer distances (e.g. up to 800m as in Try-a-Tri & Sprint Triathlons) and beyond.

Kick2Start is designed for those athletes for whom the Sport2Perf level seems a bit much. We listened to our Learn2Swim (L2s) athletes who shared that there was a gap in skill level and in conditioning after taking the L2S program – sometimes after taking it a few times – with that of the Sport2Perf training level. Its a gap that they want to close, but close before joining that level of training. So, Kick2Start (formerly Intro1 Lane) was created.

In 2017-2018: Intro1 Lane changes its name to Kick2Start Program to reflect and communicate the coaching and training philosophy. Plus, we are including as part of Kick2Start, the Intro2 to Masters Swimming. Intro2 teaches across 5 sessions the basics of the Breaststroke (BR) and the Underwater Dolphin Kick (UDK). The UDK is used both in BR and Butterfly (FLY) strokes. For details on the changes, scroll to the bottom of this page.
