OUR TEAM

SWIM PROGRAMS

The club provides swimming programs that address the needs of children of different skill levels and ages. Usually, higher skill levels correspond to higher ages but this is not always the case, so the categories are based on skills and not ages. If a category has a substantial number of children of very different ages then that category will be divided by age groups to provide the most effective coaching. Participation in swim meets is not mandatory at any level.

Senior Competitive

This group is expected to have a reasonable amount of history and experience in the sport.  The workouts here will include primarily Training to Compete with a little Training to Win.

All swimmers will be expected to know and train in all 4 strokes.  Elements of fun will still be provided, and will be incorporated into strength and endurance-based activities.

Equipment: Goggles, Water Bottle, Paddles

 

Senior Light

This group will train 2 – 3 times / week. The emphasis for this group will be on Training to Train with a small component of Training to Compete.
