**Youth Aquatics (Water Polo/Swim)**

Morro Bay Recreation has teamed up with Morro Bay High School Aquatics to bring the community Youth Water Polo and Swim this Summer. Youth Water Polo will run Monday - Thursday. The Youth Swim only option will run Tuesday/Thursday. Monday/Wednesday are Water Polo days focusing on water polo techniques, ball handling skills, drills, and game strategies. Tuesdays/Thursdays is swim practice,  workouts will focus on all 4 competitive strokes (Butterfly/Backstroke/Breaststroke/Freestyle). We will be using stroke progression and drill to improve technique, aerobic sets to improve endurance and learning competitive starts and turns!  Participants must be able to swim 25 yards Freestyle and 25 yards Backstroke (it doesn’t have to be pretty) and be able to tread water for 3 minutes the last minute with hands out of the water; in order to participate in this class. This requirement is for safety and to make sure all participants are set up for success! There will be a swim test at the beginning of each session. Youth Aquatics is up on to view now and will be open for registration tomorrow Friday June 11th at 9:30am. Registration will be through ONLY.

Call (805) 772-6278 or
Email to register for lessons

We will be able to offer limited group lessons this summer!

Quick note - Our waitlist for private and Semi-private lessons far exceeds our resources. We feel Covid-19 regulations are leveling out or being removed all together enough to plan limited summer programming. We hope that by providing group lessons we can meet more of the aquatic demand. Registration will be through ONLY, we will not be able to take registration over the phone or at the pool and City Buildings are still closed to the public (no walk ins).
