Gold Group

Gold Group

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.  

Minimum requirement to join this group:

successfully completed the 500 free and 200 IM more than once at a swim meet

5 - 100's free on 1:40

4 - 200's free on 3:30

Gold Group Coaches: Tom O'Hare & Shannon Powell-Smithers

Gold Group Fees:  $125/month (2nd Swimmer $85, 3rd Swimmer $65)

Gold group emphasizes endurance training, while still focusing on the importance of technique.  This group offers 7 swim practices a week and encourages swimmers to attend approximately 4 swim practices a week.
