New in 2018, Mini Marlins Swim School; for young kids (ages 5 to 8) that don't meet the qualifications for the competitive swim team. This level is designed to prepare swimmers for the competitive team. It is available in both the Summer and Winter seasons.
The team is divided into three levels based on a set pace. The levels are: Bronze (beginner), Silver (intermediate), and Gold (advanced).
