Ignite Swim is a swim team-style practice group for swimmers who have a strong Freestyle and Backstroke and have a basic understanding of Butterfly, Breaststroke, Flip Turns and Diving. In Ignite, swimmers will practice and refine all 4 competitive strokes, diving, flip turns and racing skills. At Propel, we teach the sport of swimming. Our coaches prioritize focused swimming over just swimming up and down the pool. We know that swimmers see the best results when every single lap has a challenge and a skill focus. Our Ignite Swim Program is designed for summer league or high school swimmers who want to learn important racing skills, improve their endurance, and get a head-start on the competition for next season!
This group is designed to complement the small-group Stroke Technique classes we offer in our Spotted Eagle Ray and Stroke School Programs. These small group classes are invaluable because we group together swimmers who are at the same skill level and the small ratios allow our coaches to break down each stroke to teach proper stroke mechanics from the ground up. Our swimmers see huge benefit from the individualized attention they receive from their coaches. We also see the benefit of pairing this with a swim team-style practice so that our swimmers can experience what it is like to swim as part of a larger group and build stamina during the longer practices.
The absolute ideal situation for any swimmer is to get the best of both worlds; the detail-oriented focus of a small-group lesson to learn and improve the competitive strokes AND the larger group practice in Ignite to reinforce all of the strokes they are learning by swimming a longer practice and longer distances!
