Practice/Swim Groups

 

The Lakes Region Wavemakers offers training and practice groups for swimmers of all ages and ability levels. It is the goal of the Lakes Region Wavemakers to offer age specific training for all of our athletes geared towards challenging each individual and developing each individual to the best of THEIR abilities.

Practice
Practices are held at Gunstock Inn, 580 Route 11A, Gilford, NH and The Health Club of Concord, 10 Garvin Falls Rd, Concord, NH

The Practice groups are broken up into 3 groups detailed below. Wavemakers strives to offer a variety of practice times to make getting to practice a bit easier. Each age group receives the individual attention they may require, as is integrating with other age groups on occasion. See our "Team Gear" tab for information regarding equipment needed and sizing for swimwear.

WINTER SEASON:
Group A:
Approximate age, 8 & under. Swimmers must be independent in the water, be able to put their face in the water and swim at least the length of the pool. These practice sessions will offer more one on one attention from the Coach, and will focus on teaching proper basic swim techniques.

Group B: Approximate age - 9 to 11. Swimmers must be independent in the water. They should have some experience with the four swim strokes, diving and turns. These practice sessions will focus on refining technique and improving endurance through drills and instruction.
Group C: Approximate age - 12 & up. Swimmers at this level will have a strong swimming ability and focus. These practice sessions will focus on refining technique, improving endurance and encourage strength training and competition improvement.
