The Blue Fins Stroke Clinic is a new offering to support the Cambridge Blue Fins swimmers during this time while the traditional swim team is unable to be offered. Blue Fins Stroke Clinic is open to those who have swum for the Cambridge Blue Fins within the last two years. The goal of the clinic is to help swimmers improve their stroke technique and performance through the use of drills and small group instruction. All four competitive swim strokes will be worked on. Swimmers will have the option of a Wednesday clinic or a Thursday clinic. At this time we ask that swimmers only register for one of the days unless space is available after the registration deadline. Clinic spots are limited to 8 per age group per day; we must have 8 to run each age group.

The Blue Fins is a competitive youth swim team open to any swimmer from Kindergarten to 12th grade who meet the minimum requirements. Our emphasis is on teamwork, individual motivation, self-esteem, and fun. Swimmers improve their swimming skills, get great exercise and make new friends.
Meets are generally Friday nights and occasional Saturdays. Parents are asked to help at home swim meets. Fall/Winter sports schedules may overlap with swim team. We are understanding in this situation and would encourage swimmers to contact the coach as applicable.
