BOLLES SCHOOL SHARKS - COMPETITIVE
In keeping with our philosophy of
providing a well-rounded, quality, competitive swimming program for
athletes of all ages and abilities, The Bolles School Sharks offer
progressive levels of professional coaching.
GROUP These groups provides training
for 8th graders and younger.
MAKOS Swimmers must be able
to complete at least one 25-yard lap of freestyle (breathing to the
side) and backstroke. The main emphasis of this group is teaching
the fundamentals of the competitive strokes. This consists of
kicking, drilling, and streamline.
TIGERS Swimmers must be
able to swim freestyle, butterfly, breaststroke, and backstroke.
Sharpening each stroke through drills and kicking, as well as
training for the next level on starts, turns, and mental skills,
will be emphasized.
HAMMERHEADS This level
concentrates on having the swimmers move from primary stroke and
technique instruction to more emphasis on training. Drill
work and kicking will continue to make up a large portion of the
practices; however, swimming sets will be added. Goal setting
will be introduced, and swimmers will be expected to be more
accountable for their swimming progression.
GREAT WHITES This group
will take on a much more rigorous training role, while continuing
to build upon the skills acquired at the Hammerhead level.
Practice times are longer in conjunction with higher yardage
requirements. The increases in physical demands require that
swimmers regularly attend practice. Swimmers will be expected
to understand interval training and will learn how to train at
different effort levels and speeds. There will also be a
greater emphasis on race strategies.
SENIORThis program provides
training for swimmers in 9th grade and older.
Bolles Students - this
training group is reserved for Bolles School students who are also
members of the Bolles School Sharks.
Late Night – this
group is offered to athletes who do not attend The Bolles School
yet are members of the Sharks year-round team.
