Novice I

Novice I Group (Developmental Level II)

Novice I is the second of our developmental training groups and we meet twice per week for one hour. To be considered for Novice I, athletes must compete in their first swim meet and they must have four legal competitive swimming strokes.

Competition is required in order to move up to this training group and it is encouraged for all swimmers who participate in Novice I training sessions.

In this training group, swimmers continue to work on the swimming drills that will help improve their strokes. They spend additional time working on push offs, streamlines, turns, and breakouts to help establish good habits for fast racing later on. They also begin to work towards building a level of aerobic stamina that will help sustain them in longer practices should they choose to move up to the competitive levels.
