Coaches

 

Description

  • Silver Group swimmers will continue to sharpen their technical skills to improve stroke efficiency, with an increased emphasis on the swimmer's fitness level (aerobic development)

  • Swimmers will be challenged with several new expectations, including increased yardage, set length, attendance requirements, and swimmer/coach communication

  • Swimmers will also be asked to take more responsibility in their training, understanding the correlation between working hard during practice (practicing the right way) and their short and long term successes.

 

General Age

  • 11 to 13

 

Skill Requirements

  • Swimmers must be legal in all four competitive strokes for 100 yards

  • Swimmers must demonstrate exceptional practice habits/skills, putting thought into their technical and aerobic training

  • Swimmers must be able to maintain the group's base intervals of 1:30/100 yard freestyle and 1:40/100 yard IM
