Gold Group


Group Information

Ages: 4-10

Prerequisites: Must be able to complete all requirements of stroke school and Silver Group.

Swimmers in these groups have some competitive swimming experience. The focus of this group is to refine and continue to develop the swimmer’s skills. Conditioning and endurance training are also introduced. As with Stroke School and Silver Group, all of the swimmer’s other activities, such as soccer, baseball, dance, etc. are encouraged. Swimmers generally compete in "BRW" level swim meets and are encouraged to attend at least four of the 1-1/2 hour practices offered each week. Skills are still being used to advance to the next level. Advancement to the next level would be Junior Olympic Group I or Junior Development Groups.

Fundraising activities are used to meet the team's budgetary needs to support team operations.

Quarter 4 will consist of our largest fundraiser the Swim-A-Thon, sponsored by USA Swimming. $50 per swimmer is the minimum required for the Swim-A-Thon event. Total minimum fundraising requirement for the year is $200.
