From the Titanium group, athletes move into this group. Athletes in this group have successfully swam the 200 IM and 500 Free at a swim meet. Athletes entering this group must display a desire to begin training on a more committed basis. Training begins to take precedence over technique work for the first time in the athlete's development. Competing at swim meets is highly encouraged at a rate of about once per month.
