11 - 15 LMR

11 - 15 LMR Program


Age range for the swimmers in this group are 11-15 who are under 3:45 minutes for the 200 IM.  The group trains 4 times per week and features advanced training for the swimmers to achieve the next level of time standards. The focus for competition are the LMR Regional meets and local invitational meets that have the appropriate time standards for entry.  It is expected that the swimmers in this group strive to achieve movement to the Provincial 13&U/13& O groups.  Swimmers will age out of the group when they turn 15 if the criteria for the next groups have not been met.  

Minimum commitment criteria for this group includes attendance at practice and all the competitions offered. As the group has a capacity and new swimmers are always moving ahead, swimmers in this group will be assessed on attendance and meet commitments.  Swimmers falling short will be given a probationary period to uphold their commitment standards or will be removed from the group.

Practice: Swimsuit (boys – jammers or briefs, no shorts), goggles, cap (especially girls with long hair), flippers, pull buoy, athletic shoes and clothes for daily dry-land.
