Cadet Group


Enthusiasm is one of the most powerful engines of success.

Nothing great was ever achieved without enthusiasm.” –   Ralph Waldo Emerson


The Cadet Group includes more advanced swimmers ages 9 and 10 as well as all swimmers ages 11 and 12. These swimmers
will be working on technique acquisition and technical endurance, the ability to maintain high technique integrity through
fatigue. This group will have both local and travel competition opportunities available to them.


Flex Option for Teal and Cadet
To make USA Swimming more accessible to NASD residents, we are offering a USA Swimming FLEX Option only for NASD swimmers 12 years of age and younger. The term “FLEX” refers to the member’s choice in how many days per week AND which days per week they will participate. Because the FLEX Option exists to increase the accessibility of our sport to NASD residents, our main goal and only expectation for these swimmers is to empower them to have a positive first experience with USA Swimming. It is our hope that these swimmers fall in love with the sport and that their commitment increases steadily as they progress and mature. If a FLEX Option swimmer begins to desire more from their performance, we will work with the families to determine what the next step is for that swimmer.
