Training Group Transitions
 

DSA has two transition periods during the year. Our main transition phase is in September, the beginning of the short course season. Our second transition phase occurs in March/April, the beginning of the long course season; movement during this period is typically minimal.

Prerequisites for group advancement include.....

  • Swimmers must have participated with the team, their original group placement, for at least one season (short course or long course)

  • Leadership within the lane, group, and team: leading by example in and out of the water

  • Meeting the attendance requirements of their current group and ability to meet the requirements of the new group

  • Consistently completing all practice sets on the required intervals. Also, showing that they can meet the next group's practice intervals

  • A positive TEAM attitude; encouraging teammates and excellent sportsmanship

  • Strong character skills are valued; mature behavior, excellent listening habits, and dedication to the appropriate effort during practice

  • A swimmer's age will be considered. Whenever possible, we do our best to keep similar ages together

  • Participation in DSA attended swim meets

  • Participation in meets that a swimmer qualifies; Silver State, Short Course State, Long Course State, Senior State

  • Swimmers need to display a desire to be promoted, and willingness to embrace the increased training and attendance commitments.
