BOLLES SCHOOL SHARKS - COMPETITIVE PROGRAM

In keeping with our philosophy of providing a well-rounded, quality, competitive swimming program for athletes of all ages and abilities, The Bolles School Sharks offer progressive levels of professional technique, instruction, and training.

AGE GROUP This group provides training for 8th graders and younger.

     MAKOS Swimmers must be able to complete at least one 25 yard lap of freestyle (rotary breathing) and backstroke. The main emphasis of this group is teaching the basic fundamentals of the competitive strokes.  This consists of kicking, drilling, and streamline.

     TIGERS Swimmers must be able to swim freestyle, butterfly, breaststroke and backstroke. Sharpening each stroke through drills and kicking, as well as training for the next level on starts, turns, and mental skills, will be emphasized.

     HAMMERHEADS This level concentrates on having the swimmers move from primary stroke and technique instruction to more emphasis on training.  Drill work and kicking will continue to make up a large portion of the practices; however, swimming sets will be added.  Goal setting will be introduced and swimmers will be expected to be more accountable for their swimming progression.

     GREAT WHITES This group will take on a much more rigorous training role, while continuing to build upon the skills acquired at the Hammerhead level.  Practice times are longer in conjunction with higher yardage requirements.  The increases in physical demands require that swimmers regularly attend practice.  Furthermore, swimmers will be expected to understand interval training and will learn how to train at different effort levels and speeds.  There will also be a greater emphasis on race strategies.

SENIOR This program provides training for swimmers in 9th grade and older.

     Bolles Students - this training group is reserved for Bolles School students who are also members of the Bolles School Sharks.

     Late Night – this group is offered to athletes who do not attend The Bolles School yet are members of the Sharks year round team.

 

USA Swimming Inc. allows for any swimmer to try out a prospective team for two weeks before making a financial commitment.
