Senior Group Structure

Changes to Group Structure:

At the end of each season, the coaching staff, much like our swimmers and parents, spend many hours

reflecting to evaluate successes, failures, and to see what we can do better to maximize the performance of

all of our athletes. With this in mind, the SCSC coaching staff will be making changes to our group

structure, which will affect our 13+ year old swimmers for the upcoming season. Coaches will be also

speaking to the swimmers and parents who will be affected by these changes in the upcoming weeks. If you

have any questions that are not answered here, or need further clarification, please do not hesitate to speak

directly to the coaching staff.

*Please see the attachment for the new Senior Group Structure.

Thank you for working with us to make sure all swimmers at SCSC are maximizing their potential!

Hi-Performance

This group will be made up of our elite level swimmers. Automatic consideration times for this group are USA Swimming Winter Junior National time standards. Others will be consider based upon their ability to manage the workload both at the pool and away. Final decisions on placement in this group will be at the sole discretion of the Head Coach. Being in this group also requires a willingness to commit to the goals and extra-curricular activities asked. This group will have a minimum of a 94% training attendance requirement. In order to be eligible to travel and to participate in training trips, etc. at a proportional expense of the club, the same attendance standard will be in place. This group is expected to compete at any and all national level meets as determined by the Head Coach, unless excused.

Performance Group

This group will be made up of 16-18 year old girls and boys who have obtained their Far Western cuts in at least two events (excluding the 50 Free).

This group will have an attendance minimum of 90% and additional training requirements as outlined by the coach of this group. Swimmers will only attend meets on the group's schedule. Meets outside of the group schedule may be attended with good cause and permission from the coach.
