It is perfect for those who want to continue swimming and stay in shape but do not have the desire for the 5-6 day a week commitment of blue group. This is great for multi-sport athletes and other busy kids. Members can come when they are able to.

Senior Performance Group

This group offers any swimmer interested in competing on a High School Swim Team a great way to get a head start on the season, and to stay in shape in the off season.  For participants who may not be on a high school swim team, it offers a chance to swim in a group that is not as aggressive as the Senior group and to be a part of Memphis Tiger Swimming. Emphasis will be on general conditioning, stroke technique, starts, turns, and dry land. This group will be offered year round. Meets are not required but are optional.
