For those swimmers who can swim 25 yards of both Free Style and Back Stroke. The emphasis of this level is to expose young swimmers to a structured athletic program. We are mostly interested in developing stroke skills. We believe at this level that doing the stroke correctly is more important then speed. Becoming Fast can be FUN !!. They meet 3 days a week for one hour each day. There is a Fish 5 group that practices 5 days a week for 1 hour. Talk to the coach to see if your swimmer is ready for this group if you are interested.
 
That doing the stroke correctly is more important then speed
80% is Technique 20% conditioning
Becoming fast can be fun !
Practice distances are 25's , 50's Max 100's
Most of practice is not sets
Swimmers are strongly encouraged to participate in ‘Fun Meets’ and County ‘BC’ meets

Sharks
This group is for the swimmer who has developed 'basic' skills in the four competitive strokes and shows an interest in doing more. The push is still more fun then work.
50% stroke work 50% conditioning
Sets 50's to 200's
{If stroke is wrong distance is too long}
Begin goal setting
We are trying to refine technique to let the swimmer see if they want to go to the next level
Swimming is fun but sometimes its work

For younger swimmers who have the skill but do not have the time or interest yet for the harder training of the higher groups

Neptunes

This group is where we are beginning to expose swimmers to harder work. ........Just Showing up is not enough. You must be willing to work .
 
This group in the North Miami Swim Team program is designed for more advanced swimmers who have developed basic swimming proficiencies and are ready to make more of a commitment to the sport. A desire to improve and a willingness to take the steps necessary for competitive progress are expected of all athletes in this group. As swimmers progress through this group, they are encouraged to make more of a commitment to swimming prior advancing to the Advanced and/or Senior group. Swimmers need to be competent in all four competitive strokes and should have the aerobic capacity to handle interval training. Proper stroke technique is emphasized along with speed work, interval training, aerobic and anaerobic conditioning. Other training includes:

• Introduction of goal setting and individual training progressions
• Dry land and stretching exercises
• Race plans and strategies
• Nutritional considerations for maximum performances and life long wellness considerations
• Teaching the importance of a positive mental attitude; positive self-concept and self-esteem.
• Importance of regular practice habits
• Evaluating progress in monthly competitions
• Providing cultural experiences in a team environment

Swimmers will also be expected to show commitment and dedication to both individual and TEAM performances. Positive attitude and extensive leadership skills are qualities that Group members will exude.
Two hour practices are designed for swimmers with complex training methods introduced and increased use of the pace clock and interval training. Highly advanced drills and stroke correction directives are given. The focus of this group is continued aerobic fitness development, race pacing and stroke tempo. Swimmers learn training techniques for sprint, middle-distance, and distance disciplines. An increased intensity is required to gain the benefits of total body conditioning with an emphasis in aerobic training. Dry land training and lactate tolerance drills are given and reinforced. Psychological training is emphasized, as well as communication with team coaches concerning training. Advanced training for competition, stretching, and a wide range of dry land exercises including some weight training will be predominant throughout the season. Progress through commitment in our motto! Nutrition and strength improvements are also a concern. Videotape analysis and scheduled swimmer-coach conferences reinforce goal setting, motivation, and improvement.

Masters
Masters swimming is an important part of the NMST environment. Masters Swimming is an opportunity for swimmers between the ages of 19 and 99 to talk and to exercise with friends who share similar interests in swimming, but want the discipline of regular workouts. Masters swimmers benefit having a coach during practice, so they can improve their technique and fitness level. The groups emphasis is on specific technique training incorporated with interval and endurance segments.
The Masters team swims a quality amount of 1500 and 4000 meters, on average, per practice, increasing or decreasing mileage depending on individual's goals. Several 90-minute sessions are offered a few times per week (please, check the official schedule), but swimmers are also welcome to just swim laps on their own. Competitive swim meets are offered.  A grace period (no dues) is offered for the first three practices. This is team policy to insure that a Masters swimming program is right for you.
There is, of course, no attendance requirement but you will find every level of skill from the casual to the die-hard athlete. There are many types of masters swimmers including: beginner swimmers, fitness swimmers, tri-athletes, open water competitors, and swimmers wanting to compete against men and women their own age from all levels.
