Senior B Group
Athletes entering this group must be at least 11 years of age and display a strong desire to perform at the highest level they are capable. Swimmers in this group have either qualified for FLAGS or are training for it. Proper technique is still emphasized but dry land training and more yardage is also introduced. This is NOT a recreational training group. The focus of this group is training for the Florida Age Group and Senior Championship swim meets. Swimmers in this group must commit to attend a minimum of 4 SWIM practices a week and one meet a month. Practices prepare athletes to compete and swim meets give meaning to the practices.
In addition to successfully completing the 200 IM and 500 free, swimmers must also be able to complete a minimum training set:
5 - 100's free on 1:30
4 - 200's free on 3:10
Senior B Group Coach: Tom O'Hare
Senior Group B: $125/month (2nd Swimmer $85, 3rd Swimmer $65)
The Senior B group offers 7 practices a week and attendance requirements are a minimum of 4 SWIM practices a week (Consideration will be given to high school swimmers during high school season). Attendance at swim meets is also required. If attendance requirements are not maintained swimmers will be moved to the Gold Group.
Equipment required: fins, pull buoy, snorkel, hand paddles, 8" parachute, and kick board.
