Training and Performance Guidelines

Equipment Needs: Water bottle, practice suit, mesh bag,  pull buoy, paddles, goggles, fins, snorkel and cap.

Practice Attendance: Practices are typically offered five times per week, when there are no meets or other overriding conflicts. The coaches recommend attending 4-5 practices per week, inclusive of both dryland and swimming, and achieving an overall at or above a 75% level for practice attendance. Swimmers not meeting these recommendations may be asked to change to the Futures training group.

Indiana Swimming Representation:Swimmers qualifying for Zones, Quad Team, Select Camps, etc. are expected to participate when eligible for these programs. Swimmers are also encouraged to attend available Stroke Clinics Swim Camps as well. i.e.: Memorial Day Catch the Spirit Camp as they will find the experience and benefits of being surrounded by others of similar motivation and dedication to the sport to be very rewarding in their career development.

Training Philosophy: Practices are meant to be both fun and challenging. We know this works when our swimmers want to be at practice and are also showing signs of improvement at meets after regular attendance.Brownsburg Swim Club looks to provide the best coaching, training and learning environment for our swimmers as they grow through the age group progressions of our swimming program. The training is also geared towards preparing swimmers to enter the Performance group. Coaches will use their discretion in their daily practices to ensure areas of need are being addressed, especially depending on the phases of the training season, and that the fun time is also balanced in among the challenge sets. To this point, dryland activities are a great time for the swimmers to build friendships with one another, learn responsibility and leadership as well as to promote a positive competitive team environment.

Saturday practices are traditionally challenging so we want to establish this notion early. Bulldog Swimmers should be encouraged to challenge themselves and understand that Saturdays aren’t something to be feared, but looked forward to and as a methodology for better equipping our swimmers for the long-term competitive racing side of the sport!
