“A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step” - Loazi
The Aqua and Turquoise Groups includes all 8&U swimmers and beginning swimmers ages 9 to approximately 11yr. These swimmers will develop technique and practice skills essential in maximizing long-term development. This group will have both local and travel competition opportunities available to them.
Aqua:Designed to introduce beginner level swimmers to the sport of competitive swimming with a focus on learning proper competitive swimming techniques. This group will focus mainly on Freestyle and Backstroke, also touching on Breaststroke and Butterfly. Turquoise:A beginning practice level group that focuses mainly on improving technique in all aspects of the sport. Turquoise swimmers must be able to complete 25 yards (1 length of the pool) of at least 3 legal strokes (Freestyle, Backstroke, and Breaststroke OR Freestyle, Backstroke, and Butterfly).
FLEX Option for Aqua and Turquoise 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.
