Training groups and criteria are designed to help swimmers be successful in the sport. We encourage younger swimmers to be involved with other sports and activities as well. The training groups are designed around age with flexibility between them. Performance is a consideration in finding the right group for each swimmer. Also, to be considered is physical and emotional preparedness.
