Elite Age Group (age 11-14): *4 practices per week minimum (5-6 are encouraged) during active season
The Elite Age Group (EAG) is geared towards swimmers 11-14 years old who want to refine the skills developed throughout the Advanced Age Group program in a challenging environment. This group is expected to practice a minimum of four times a week as they are focus on aerobic training, but are encouraged to come to five or six practices a week. Stroke technique is emphasized at every practice as swimmers learn tools to help them become more self-aware in the water. Athletes in this group are expected to race every event once a season in order to become a well-rounded swimmer. Most swimmers in this group have a long-term goal of moving up into the elite level of the senior program.
For more information about our Elite Age Group, please see our CONTRACT Groups Info Sheet.
If you think your swimmer is ready to be a part of our Elite Age Group program, please talk to a coach. We require a meeting with each family who wishes to be a part of our contract groups, and the coaches must evaluate whether swimmers are ready to fit into their workouts or more progress needs to be made first.
*Elite Age Group swimmers should have their own water bottle, set of flippers, front snorkel, cap, goggles, and team suit. The fins at the pool are actually left there by swimmers who have outgrown them! Please visit the Gear/Apparel tab to find out how to order your own gear.
Please visit the Calendars tab and select “Elite Age Group (Contract)” from the drop-down to view the practices offered for this group.
