Rookie Camp Begins April 17

What to Expect

Rookie Camp is mandatory for all NEW Kingfish swimmers AND for previous 6 and under swimmers who are aging up to 7 for the 2024 season. The purpose of Rookie Camp is to ensure that all of our swimmers are pool safe. Our goal is to get every swimmer in a Kingfish cap. If you are apprehensive about putting your child on the team, please come and give it a try. Your little swimmer may surprise you!

For 6 and under swimmers, once our coaches have determined that your swimmer is pool safe, it is not necessary for them to continue with Rookie Camp. This allows our coaches to spend as much time as possible with those who require additional help.

For 7 & ups, the focus will be on learning the 4 strokes. It's a great introduction before the returning swimmers come to practice the following week.


  • 6 & Under: 5:15-6:00
  • 7 & Up: 6:00-6:45


“My swimmer swam last year as a 6 & under and now is 7. Should she come to rookie camp?”

--Yes! We will be working on learning the 4 strokes.

"My swimmer is 6 and swam last year as a Kingfish. Should he come to rookie camp?"
--No, they will begin practice the following week.

"My swimmer is turning 9. Should they participate in the strokes clinic on Tuesday and Thursday of rookie camp?"
--Yes, absolutely!

"My swimmer is coming from another team and is a 6&under. Should she come to rookie camp?"
--Yes, please! We want to ensure all of our swimmers are pool safe before practice officially starts.
