Wildrose Provincial Age Group (PAC) Program
Athletes in the Wildrose program compete at a provincial level and train 6 to 10 hours a week, beginning in September and finishing in May/June. The program consists of 3 age categories where skills become increasingly more challenging as they move up. Swimmers develop their figures skills, strength, and flexibility, and practice a team routine for competitions. Swimmers will get the opportunity to compete in approximately 4 to 5 regional and provincial competitions throughout the season.
The age categories include: 10 & Under, 11-12, Novice, 13-15, and 16-18. The age category that a swimmer falls into depends on the age that they turn in the competitive season, which is considered to be Jan 1 – Dec 31.
