2019-2020 Group Descriptions

2019-2020 Training Groups

These are all subject to the coaching staff’s approval. No movements will be made until August
of each season unless there is an extreme circumstance which then will be decided by the staff
as a whole. We want each swimmer to have a full season within a group to fully train and grow
as a swimmer. The Program Director has the right to move up or down a swimmer if they see fit
within a season with a 2 week notice to the swim family.
