Seniors (Competitive Level III)
While the rest of our training groups are ability based, the Senior group is the only one that is governed by the age of the athlete. Once your swimmer hits the summer before they enter high school, it is time for them to move up and join the Senior group. Involvement with that same-age peer group becomes very important at this point. Often times the decision to stay with swimming or walk away forever is dependent on the social atmosphere of the team. We are trying to build as much of a positive place for the athletes to swim and socialize as we possibly can. We know that is important! Seniors swim M-F 3:00 PM to 5:00 PM, Saturday 9:30 AM to 11:00 AM, and MWF 5:30 AM to 6:30 AM. They also have the option of T/TH Strength Training from 5:30 AM to 6:30 AM. We ask that the Senior athletes commit to a total of five swims per week.
Participation in swim meets is mandatory at this level of training. We understand when athletes have to miss one for a school function or a family trip. But attendance at swim meets should be a high priority at this point.
In this training group the coaching staff becomes a supporting player in the grand vision of the Senior swimmer. We guide them towards the options that are available to them as comeptitive swimmers and we help them achieve the goals they set for themselves in every way we can. We support Senior swimmers through their high school swimming & diving experience, we guide them through the regular season and all the various local, regional, and national meets they qualify for, and we help them plan for swimming beyond high school graduation with participation in college athletics. In ten years we hope to see kids graduating from our program and going on to college swimming every single year. It is a big job to be a competitive swimmer in high school, and we help them in any way they require to make their swimming dreams come true.
