Swim Groups

The North Aquatics Club Sharks offers training and practice groups for swimmers of all ages and ability levels. It is the goal of the North Aquatics Club Sharks to offer age specific training for all of our athletes geared towards challenging each individual and developing each individual to the best of THEIR abilities.

Evolution of a North Aquatic Shark

Great White Sharks:
The main focus is continuous refinement of swimming stroke, diving, turns, and relay starts. Freestyle and backstroke are the main strokes, although breaststroke and butterfly are introduced and worked on.

Silver Sharks:
Swimmers in the Silver group will work on all four strokes, refinement of strokes, starts and turns, endurance, race strategy, competitive skills and the understanding of time standards. Swimmers will start to understand pace, how to swim on sendoffs, and the understanding of time standards are introduced at this level.

Slurple Sharks:
A hybrid of silver and purple.   Swimmers that can handle a workout similar to that of purple sharks but because of their age, less yardage.

Purple Sharks:
Swimmers in the purple group are in a transition to get ready to move to the level of the gold group. The main focus will be more yards, faster send-offs and refinement of swimming stroke. Swimmers at this level are expected to start making a commitment to the sport and to prepare to move into the longer practice time and difficultly of the next level.

Gold Sharks:
Swimmers in the Gold group have developed the ability to train at a greater volume and intensity and have established a consistency in training that reflects a commitment to the program. Swimmers are expected to compete in the highest level competition.
