White Group Documents from the Coach

Hello Age Group families in White, ages 8 & under.  Swimmers in the White group have the flexibility to learn all training skills to become successful.  We understand that some swimmers may not want to swim all of the meets during the season, or they have not developed their butterfly and breaststroke yet.  The coaches will work with your athlete to develop all skills so that he/she will become meet ready and transition to the next training level at the desired pace.

Please review the Practice schedule (found under the "Swim Team" menu) and the Equipment Checklist (found under the "Athlete Info" menu)
