About Youth Workouts


Youth Workout Times:

COVID 19 Rules: It is extremely important that we follow Petaluma Swim Center's regulations so that we may all continue to enjoy the facility:

  • Bring your own pull buoy, kick board and hand paddles. The pool will not supply these during COVID 19.
  • The showers are closed. The bathroom is available for one person at a time.
  • There is no deck changing of clothing. Arrive in your swimsuit. After workout, you may throw on a jacket/towel, but there is no swimsuit removal on the deck.

Your Youth Monthly Membership gives you access to 3 weekly workouts:

Tuesday & Thursday: 5:15-6:15 PM short course (25 yards)
Sunday: 8:00-9:30 AM 

The Sunday workout is for adult swimmers and youth swimmers who can follow the posted workout. 

Please arrive promptly. The longer workout allows everyone to complete the entire workout, or extend their workout with more yardage. Swimmers arriving after 8:00 a.m. must choose an available "open" lane.

    What to Expect:

    Weekday Workouts:

    Weekday workouts are one hour long and range from 2000 to 2500 yards. Coach O'Brien will place swimmers in their lanes based on her evaluation.

    Each workout consists of a warm-up set followed by a series of short sets (50-200 yards) emphasizing the 4 swim strokes: freestyle, breast stroke, backstroke and butterfly. Coach O'Brien will give correction and feedback to perfect the different strokes. Workouts usually include pulling with a pull buoy and kicking with a board. Occasionally, youth swimmers will practice block starts. 

    While Coach O'Brien emphasizes correct stroke development, her youth workouts include a lot of fun WITH the challenges.

    What to Bring to the Workout:
