Hobby Swim Group (13-17 years old)
This group is an opportunity for a child or youth to enjoy swimming as a hobby without competitive goals. Hobby group swimmers can earn various swim achievement badges (distance swimming, candidate/master of swimming) offered by the Finnish Swimming Teaching and Lifesaving Federation.
The group is suitable for example for teenagers who wish to have swimming as a hobby, but are not interested in competitive swimming.
Hobby groups train 1-2 times per week but you can join more than one group.
Starting level requirements
To participate, a child must have successfully have completed Children's Stroke Technique or Vesiralli 4 (Dolphin pin) or, alternatively, demonstrate the ability to swim a distance of 200 meters and mastery of the basics of the four strokes.
In the Hobby Swim Group we will practice different swimming techniques, long distance swimming and ”swimming programs”, without forgetting also having fun.
