Age Group Performance

Age Group Performance:

Ages: 10-13

 

Age Group Performance is designed for age group swimmers who have demonstrated the highest commitment to swimming and have proven to require a more challenging training regimen.  Swimmers in this group are primarily 11-13 with a few 10 year olds. Swimmers in this group typically will attend Alaska Junior Olympic Championships and will have goals of qualifying for Zones or Sectionals. Training intensity increases in this group, and the focus is on implementing and learning racing strategies of multiple events.  Swimmers in this group will have dryland training included in their overall training plan. Stroke instruction and education are still a priority for swimmers in this group, but become more individualized to the swimmer. Swimmers in this group will consistently attend practice four days a week or more and maintain 80% cumulative attendance; those who do not may be moved to Age Group Endurance.
