Gauchos Philosophy

Our swimming philosophy is strongly based in science, namely Parametric training.

We seek to replicate our results through quality and speed repetition. In other words, training within a Parametric system focuses on quality over quantity; meaning that we swim low volume (quantity) with high consistency for stroke and speed work (quality).

The above is our physical training philosophy. Our mental training philosophy is to empower the swimmer to take control of their future. We aim to help swimmers on their journey towards swimming success by guiding the athlete as they learn through the scary reality that their decisions have a direct reflection on their success.

We may be different than any other team you have trained with, but we strive to think outside the box in order to help evolve the sport of swimming.

Training

Our normal training schedule is 4 days a week (outside of meets and breaks) and we ask that the swimmers to be at each practice, but we do not penalize for missed practices.

Practices are normally scheduled on Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday evenings, as well as Saturday mornings.

High school swimmers start at 5:30 p.m. on weekdays and 8:30 a.m. on Saturdays.

8 - 14 year old swimmers start at 5:45 p.m. on weekdays and 8:45 a.m. on Saturdays.

We space out training to allow for recovery time as well as allowing for time for homework, family events, etc. We understand that life comes up and you may need to miss a practice, but just as in school, that means you miss any teachings of the day and it is not as simple as reading a chapter in a book or doing a make-up assignment to catch up.

We are a year-round swim team that trains 46 weeks a year, with 6 weeks of breaks spread out throughout the training season. These weeks off are usually occur in March, August, and December/January, after the conclusion of the seasons (March/end of July) as well as the start of school (August) and winter break (December/January). The pricing of the groups includes the price of the breaks built in.
