Alameda Island Aquatics offers training and practice groups for swimmers of all ages and ability levels.

Our goal is to offer age-specific training for all of our athletes. AIA coaches guide each of their students towards challenging themselves and striving to achieve results at their own pace and abilities.

Group 1

This group is actually two groups in one. The first group is where the least experienced swimmers are brought up to a basic team swimming level. Individual attention is constant. The four strokes (fly, back, breast and free) are introduced so that the swimmers have the basics of the strokes as part of their skill set. The second part of Group 1 extends the abilities of the swimmer to be able to correctly perform the four strokes while building endurance. One of the primary goals of Group one is to keep the swimmer in the water by making swimming fun. Time is allotted to activities such as playing games and jumping off of the diving boards. Workouts last one hour.
