Description

  • Swimmers have now reached the highest level in our age group progression.  By this time they will have developed a strong technical and aerobic foundation, along with sound training habits

  • With this opportunity comes advanced responsibilities and expectations.  Practice, training, swim meet, and communication expectations increase

  • Swimmers will be training to acheive a higher aerobic capacity while continuing to refine their technical skills.  Swimmers should be able to maintain their stroke technique focus throughout practice, including strenuous sets.

  • Our goal with the Black Group is to prepare swimmers for a smooth transition into our Senior Program
