High School

HYACK's Specialized Programs: High School 

The Hyack Swim Club offers a number of programs that do not fall into the typical Age-group Training structure.  These programs are usually very specific in nature to develop a certain type of aquatic activity through swim training.  Some are ongoing throughout the year and some are for a specific time period.  Some programs are brand new for this year and are being developed on an ongoing basis for next year and beyond.

Overview: The High school group is for athletes to maintain previous skills and learn new skills in a modified practice environment. 

The group is ideal for swimmers who wish to take a step back from the demands of a Provincial or Youth National competitive program, but would like to 'stay in shape' with some pool workouts a few times a week.

Any swimmers who are interested in stroke improvement, general fitness, training for Lifesaving courses, etc, would fit well into this group.

The main focus in this level is to have fun with a variety of skills, drills, and sets in practice.

Pre-requisites: There are no specific requirements for the group.  Generally the swimmers are able to follow a workout and swim multiple meters at a time.  Full attendance is optimal, but not required. 

Swimmers’ Commitment and Goals:
1. Attend as many practices as possible.
2. If competition is a desire, then inquire and work towards moving to a competitive group.
3. Have Fun!

Parents’ Commitment:
1. Arrange to have your swimmer attend all practices.
2. Contact your coach to let them know if your swimmer may miss a practice or event.
3. Stay informed by reading and responding to: emails, website and as always talking with your child’s coach.

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

Practices: 3 x per week, 1 to 1 ¼ hour of swimming and 15-30 min of dry-land.
