Junior Eels (Levels 1 & 2)
The Junior Eels Competition Track is designed for swim lesson participants who have the goal of becoming competitive swimmers and joining the Redmond Aquatic Club Eels (RACE). RACE is Redmond’s year-round USA Swimming age group swim team (ages 8-18). The focus of the two Junior Eels levels is to prepare participants to be competitive swimmers. Aquatic activities and swim skills unrelated to competitive swimming are deemphasized, and in some cases excluded, from the curriculum of the Junior Eel levels. The program is designed to be a fun, but rigorous, initiation into the world of competitive swimming. It's recommended that participants in this program have a sincere interest in the sport of swimming and plan on joining a competitive team.
