The league offers a team environment in which swimmers participate in a fun low-key program which enhances the development of the four competitive strokes, starts, and turns. Regular practice sessions are held four times per week, and there are both home and away scheduled swim meets against other teams. To be eligible for this program, the participant must be able to swim at least one length of freestyle (front crawl) and may not be a member of a college swim team.
