Practice days: Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday 
 
Practice Objectives: The suggested age for this group is 12 years old and younger swimmers who are continuing to master the 4 competitive strokes and race skills. Swimmers will work on proper technique and build endurance during their practice sessions. Swim meet competition is encouraged as a fun and positive part of the swimming experience. Coaches will help each swimmer set goal times appropriate to his or her current skill level, with personal improvement as the primary focus. Please refer to the Team Calendar on our main page for practice times and locations.
 
Advancement:  In addition to coach's discretion, swimmers must be able to perform all 4 strokes for a minimum of 50 yards.  It is expected that swimmers participate in numerous sanctioned meets each season and are experimenting with new and longer events.
