The Yellow 1 (Y1) group maintains an emphasis on stroke technique while incorporating more aerobic endurance, dryland exercises and racing skills. Y1 group swimmers must show competency in all of the above skills as well as demonstrate a respectful and positive attitude at practices and swim meets to all team members. We encourage and teach a lifelong love and appreciation of the sport as we introduce this group to more rigorous training, preparing them to compete regularly.
