Swim Practice Groups
The Pennridge Aquatic Club is excited to offer 3 different practice levels to enthusiastic swimmers ages 5 to 14. We have three levels that meet the needs for all aspiring swimmers. All practice placement and movement are finalized by the Pennridge Aquatic coaching staff.
When creating our practice groups, we will have 24 swimmers per group along with 2 coaches and 2 lifeguards. Note, we may need to drop to one coach if registration for a group is 15 or less swimmers. To ensure safety of all participants, we will also be following these Covid 19 Guidelines – Click here.
Green - Inexperienced swimmers who need stroke correction on the four main strokes as well as work on starts and turns. Ages range from 5 to 10 years of age. Instruction is given in intervals of ½ lap or full lap intervals. The overall goal is to create swimmers who are knowledgeable on their strokes before train ing.
White – Younger Experienced swimmer who does all the strokes legally. Practice group provides technique instruction. The concept of training sets is introduced to this group. Ages range from 7 to 11 years of age.
Black – An experienced swimmer who has the ability and mental maturity to train at high speeds and handle challenging yardage. Selection for this group will require consistent effort, commitment, and require daily attendance. Teaching and technique are still provided but a quicker pace. Age range from 10 to 18 years of age.
