Swim Group Descriptions
BLCC’s practice group guidelines have been developed by its coaching staff to maximize the growth and development of swim techniques for swimmers of all levels. Swimmers of similar age and abilities will be grouped together to reach the goals set for each level. The assignment of swimmers to a group shall be the decision of the coaching staff. In rare instances, an assignment may be modified during the swim season, if the coaching staff believes a different group would be more appropriate for the swimmer.
