Development ages 11-12

 

Description:

Swimmers in this squad will be striving to learn proper technique in all four competitive strokes, including starts, turns, and streamlining. Swimmers will be introduced to goal setting, generally accepted racing strategies, and have their first taste of competition at appropriately selected local competitions. Swimmers will also compete and strive to improve their technique while maintaining fitness and having fun. The training emphasis is on learning how to swim properly, not time standards. Swimming well will lead to championship qualification.

Swimmers will target a graduation into Bronze or Junior Select. Graduations are based on met criteria including training, skill, performance, accountability and commitment.
