for Challenge and Success
Our program is designed to encompass and
challenge all who participate, as well as follow a continuous
developmental progression. To that end, we divide the team by age
and ability and encourage them to grow within and into each new
level. Workout schedules and squad placements are determined by the
coaching staff with the goal of meeting the swimmer’s
individual needs for success.
Coaching of our newest and/or youngest
swimmers is oriented towards the development of swimming basics,
including the four strokes, turns, and starts. Early development of
the competitive swimmer emphasizes enjoyment of the sport. Work on
technique and fitness is balanced with a certain amount of fun and
games. More experienced swimmers are exposed to increased
conditioning and advanced training concepts including mental
preparation, cross training, and nutrition.
